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.
