What's the difference between Rattlesnake Review and WTF?
The over-18 thing should give you a clue. Its material tends to
be more X-rated, for one thing. Plus, Rattlesnake Review
is big and fat, has articles and other features, and represents
a wide variety of styles and genres. WTF is leaner
(smaller), meaner, and more geared to the "Luna's voice", if
there is such a thing. (If you ever go to Poetry Unplugged on
Thursday nights at Luna's Cafe, you'll see what we mean.) If
you're over 18, though, you're welcome to submit to either one.
You might also go to the SnakeRings

which features over 100 pages of poetry and artwork from 13
years of Poetry Unplugged. Click on
