Rabbit: a journal for nonfiction poetry

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


RABBIT is a print journal for nonfiction poetry, based in Melbourne, Australia. It was founded by Jessica L. Wilkinson in mid-2011 and is released quarterly.

A pioneer in the field, RABBIT intends to celebrate the potential for poetry to explore and interrogate the boundaries of nonfiction writing. RABBIT encourages poets to openly engage with auto/biography, history, politics, economics, mathematics, cultural analysis, science, the environment, and all other aspects of real world experience, recollection and interpretation.

RABBIT publishes all things poetry – poems, reviews, essays on poetry and poetics, interviews with poets, and visual art by poets – with an emphasis on new and emerging rabbits (poets) and a focus on supporting Australian poetry.

Some of the contributors to the journal include Michael Brennan, Stuart Cooke, Johanna Drucker, Dennis Cooley, Craig Santos Perez, Justin Clemens, Jennifer Compton, Kenneth Goldsmith, Duncan Hose, Michael Farrell, Jordie Albiston, Petra White, Amy Brown, Anna Jackson, Alex Skovron, Robert Sullivan, Ian McBryde, Kate Middleton, Jill Jones, Bonny Cassidy, Patrick Jones, Eileen Myles, Ann Vickery, Lesley Wheeler, Ania Walwicz, Pierre Joris, Peter Boyle, Ken Bolton, Fiona Hile and Pam Brown.
