The reputable Bull City Press is set to release this gem on September 5th, so be on the lookout, dear readers. In the meantime, get your hands on our 2016 issue and read Conor’s “Anti-Elegy During Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.”

Poetry & the Work of Seeing: The best descriptions describe consciousness, the mind playing over the world of matter, finding something various and complex enough to reflect back the complexities of the self that’s doing the looking. We will cover poetic techniques that allow us to capture the unsayability of what being is.
Dear Forum Fans,
Our monthly episode at the Evanston Library will be on hiatus this month. Fear not! We’ll resume our forums on September 24th, with Chris Green at the helm. More details forthcoming–stay tuned and have a great August.
The submissions period for RHINO is now closed.
The next general submission period is April 1- July 31, 2018 (poetry, poetry translations and flash fiction); we read for the 2017 Founders’ Prize Contest (poetry) September 1 – October 31.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our online content and consider a purchase of the current issue or past (and discounted) issues!
