Read our Submission Guidelines for details! We look forward to reading your work!
RHINO is an annual beautiful print journal with significant online content. We’re now open for general submissions for our 2016 issue!
We have two submissions periods yearly: General submissions accepted April 1 – August 31; and Founders’ Prize submissions accepted September 1 – October 31 (with a $10 reading fee). We accept only one submission per submitter each reading period.
Our editors look for the very best in contemporary poetry, poetry in translation and flash-fiction. We welcome all styles of poems, and value work that is well-crafted, reflects passion, originality, engagement with contemporary culture, and a love affair with language.
- Poetry (up to 5 poems, no more than 5 pages total) – all poems also considered for our Editors’ Prize.
- Translations of poetry ( 3-5 poems, no more than 5 pages total). Occasionally we award a Translation Prize.
- Flash fiction (500 words or less, no more than 5 pages total).
- Founders’ Prize (up to 5 poems, no more than 5 pages total) – all entries are considered for publication.
We prefer online submissions— http://www.rhinopoetry.org/submissions/ —but we also accept submissions by mail.
