RHINO 2015 cover largex

The editors of RHINO are thrilled to announce that our first installment of our online edition of RHINO 2015 is here!


We continue to remain committed to publishing a print journal yearly; the publication of the poems online in three installments (beginning 6 months after print publication) is intended to supplement and broaden the outreach of the print journal.


The second installment will go up in October and the third and final installment will go up in December.

You can now find the poems from the authors below, here.

No Poetry Forum in August

No August Poetry Forum – see you in September!

The RHINO Poetry Forum Workshop & Peer Exchange is more than a hammer-and-nail workshop.  In existence since the 1970s, its goal has always been to present diverse views on poetry and poetics, as well as to exchange poems for critiquing, in which everyone, including RHINO Poetry editors and past leaders, participate as peers.  All poets are invited.

The Forum, with rare exceptions, meets on FOURTH SUNDAYS, at the Evanston Library.
During the first half hour the guest leader presents on a topic of her or his choice; the rest of the time is divided among participants  who bring poems for feedback.  Discussion is welcome.  Leaders are paid an honorarium, and — in keeping with our goal — come from everywhere, both geographically and in their approach to poetry.
Attendance is free, although a $5-$10 donation is appreciated.  Bring at least 17 copies of a poem you want critiqued.

Fourth Sundays, 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Evanston Public Library – Room 108
