Poetry magazine RATTLE plans a special issue on nursing -- submit your entry!
RATTLE #28 - Winter 2007 - Nurses
The California-based poetry magazine RATTLE plans to include a tribute to nursing in its Winter 2007 issue. RATTLE seeks poetry and essays by its August 1 submission deadline.
Poetry: The tribute section will feature poetry written by nurses. Poems need not necessarily be written about nurses, but they must be written by nurses.
Essays: RATTLE wants to publish a series of short essays on the relationship between poetry and healthcare. How does practicing nursing affect your writing? Does writing affect the way you practice nursing? Does there seem to be a relationship between healing and writing? RATTLE is also interested in essays that might profile a specific historical nurse-poet.
Follow the regular guidelines, but please note in the cover letter that you are a nurse.
Deadline for submissions: August 1st, 2007
Please submit your work to help society learn about the value of nursing work. Thank you!
