Rattlecast

A Livestreaming Poetry Reading and Podcast

 
We’re bringing the magic of the Rattle Reading Series into your pockets with the weekly Rattlecast. Part interview and part reading, with a prompt-based open mic, it’s a casual way to hangout with Rattle editor Timothy Green and all of our friends in poetry around the world. The Rattlecast livestreams every Tuesday night at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. Please go to our YouTube channel and click “Subscribe.” Each show is also simulcast to Facebook Live. An audio-only version is available on Soundcloud and various podcasting apps—search for “Rattlecast” on yours.

Each Rattlecast episode also features a writing prompt at the end of the show, and a short open mic for poems written for the last week’s prompt. If you’d like to participate, just send your poem to openmic [at] rattle [dot] com, and he’ll read and share a few on the air. If you’d like to read it yourself, you can call in at the end of of the show over Skype or by phone. Remember that these poems will be broadcast and archived in audio and video form. We don’t believe this should count as “publication” for literary purposes, but other magazines might.
