Rattlecast

A Livestreaming Poetry Reading and Podcast

We’re bringing a new poet into your pocket every week with the 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—usually Mondays at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, though the schedule sometimes varies. Please go to our YouTube channel and click “Subscribe.” Every show is simulcast to Facebook and Twitter. An audio version is available on iTunesSoundcloudSpotify, Amazon, and other podcasting apps—search for “Rattlecast” on your favorite.

Each Rattlecast begins with a Poets Respond Live segment, featuring poems about the news, and also features a writing prompt at the end of the show, and open lines for poems written for the last week’s prompt or anything else the audience would like to share. To participate, just send your poem to openmic [at] rattle [dot] com so it can be shown on-screen. If you can read it yourself, join in on Zoom during the last half of the show—a like will be provided in the chat windows on YouTube and Facebook.

Next Week’s Prompt: Write an obituary for an inanimate object or concept.
