Rattle Magazine has bowled me over with just how good it is. Being an expectant father, I was naturally attracted to the Single Parent Fall 2013 edition, and I wasn’t disappointed. I became a subscriber because I wanted to get a good idea of what the poetry market was like, and what I needed to do to get into that market, but I didn’t imagine it would be so much fun. I don’t know how my life is going to change after the birth. It’s tempting to see myself becoming just another work monkey, banging away til I drop, but I suspect that this is a simplification. Who knows if I will be able to maintain the blog, let alone start a small, side career in selling verse. All I know is I love issues 41, 42, and 43 and that you might too. Go do yourself a favour, and download one of these PDFs onto your smartphone and see for yourself.
