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.

About Submission Calls
I post paying submission calls every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I focus on fiction calls, but occasionally post paying opportunities for creative nonfiction and poetry.
Browse more submission calls or tips for writers. You can sort calls by payment rate: token, semi-professional, professional, or royalties. To get a weekly roundup of all my posts for writers, sign up here.
I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with characters from underrepresented groups, including queer/LGBTQIA characters. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies, or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
