No-entry-fee writing contest: Rattle’s Ekphrastic Challenge | $100 top prize

Deadline: 31 July 2022

There’s a long tradition of poetry responding to art (and vice versa), and we thought it would be fun to post these challenges. Every month we will post an image on our Ekphrastic Challenge page. Poets will then have one month to write a poem in response to that specific image.

After the deadline (the last day of each month), Rattle’s editor and the artist who provided the image will each select their favorite poem, which will be published online the next month. Submissions to this category will only be considered as responses to the single image posted for the current month. If your poem isn’t written in response to that image, please use the General Poems category instead. 

Two winners—one chosen by the artist and the other by Rattle’s editor—will receive online publication and $100 each.


Submissions: Via Submittable
