  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 43, Summer 2017

Life is full of open and closed doors—those moments when we did or didn't extend kindness to ourselves, to friends, to family, or to strangers. In this issue, we explore these opened and closed doors, learning through honest storytelling and art about crossing the threshold and how opening the door is a small but profound step toward kindness and hospitality. Featuring the 2017 VanderMey Nonfiction Prize recipient Sonja Livingston, awarded by judge Josh MacIvor-Andersen.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 56, Summer 2017

Rattle #56 features a tribute to poets living with mental illness. An estimated 26% of Americans experience mental illness in a given year, and we wanted to acknowledge and explore that reality, while also helping to diminish the stigma of these illnesses. Twenty-nine poets contributed to this issue. While the topics of the poems themselves vary greatly, each of the poets live with some form of depressive, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, bi-polar, post-traumatic stress, or eating disorder—all of discussed openly and bravely in their contributor notes. In the conversation section, we talk about mental illness and other topics with Francesca Bell.
