Submission call: Rattle magazine wants the writings of Instagram poets Due January 15, pays $100/poem

For its Summer 2019 issue, the poetry magazine Rattle wants to feature poets who publish their work on Instagram. The editors write:

The poems may be any style, length, or subject, but must have first appeared on Instagram and not yet appeared in print. Our goal is to find the best poetry that’s happening on this new and dynamic platform, and the best poets who are primarily publishing there. Submissions may include artwork if you have the ability to license its use (i.e. if the art is also your original work, Creative Commons licensed, or in the public domain). Due to the electronic nature of this theme, we’re only accepting submissions as links through Submittable. Please be sure to select the Instagram Poets category.
