According to the magazine’s website:

"RATTLE" is pretty simple: We love poetry and feel that it's something everyone can enjoy. We look for poems that are accessible, that have heart, that have something to say. [ [http://www.rattle.com/about.htm] Web page titled "RATTLE: About Us" at the RATTLE website, Accessed June 30th, 2008]

Each issue features a theme honoring a particular community of poets, such as teachers, slam poets, or, most recently, nurse poets. Interviews with contemporary poets are also a staple of the twice-yearly publication. Though primarily dedicated to its print issues, the magazine’s website features a variety of supplemental material, such as audio archives [ [http://www.rattle.com/audio.htm] Web page titled "RATTLE: Audio Archives" at the RATTLE website, accessed June 30th, 2008] , reviews of contemporary poetry [ [http://www.rattle.com/ereviews.htm] Web page titled "RATTLE: e-Reviews" at the RATTLE website, Accessed June 30th, 2008] , and electronic issues [ [http://www.rattle.com/eissues.htm] Web page titled "RATTLE: e-Issues" at the RATTLE website, Accessed June 30th, 2008] .

"RATTLE" Poetry Prize

The "RATTLE" Poetry Prize, established in 2006, awards $5000 to the best poem submitted, as decided by the magazine’s editors. Ten $100 honorable mentions are also awarded.
