Our editing services are currently open! Send us work below for that extra personal feedback to really polish your poem packet before sending it out into the submission world.

We are un-paid editors reading hundreds of submissions monthly for our regular published issues of OROBORO. Charging here helps to offset that time, labor and expertise donated when reading general submissions. Most times, you'll receive feedback from both editors so you are actually getting two sets of eyes on your work! 

We take the reading of and feedback towards yours work seriously and want to take the time to give you the best, most personalized feedback towards your work as we can!

IMPORTANT NOTE!! Both editing forms are for EDITING SERVICES only and are NOT a submission for PUBLICATION in our journal. They will not be considered for publication. If submitted in error, we of course can refund your editing fee.

It can be challenging and frustrating for artists early in their writing histories to seek publication, and OROBORO was founded in part to address that frustration. New writers deserve to see their work published, and deserve the same care and generosity shown to published authors. We love being the first publication of emerging writers and encourage submissions from people of any age and experience. We also expect experienced writers who submit for publication to embrace this attitude and find value in having their work published alongside new writers.

Publishing tri-annual issues of poetry, flash fiction, and comics, OROBORO looks forward to collecting new works from new authors and artists.

Death Rattle’s ambitious plan for this year’s programming and publishing endeavours is for everything to work symbiotically with each other - workshops to support publication genres, writing contests and our year-round reading series all into the annual festival itself- much like the cycle of the ouroboros.

If you want extra/personal feedback regarding your submission prior to submitting, editing services from our editorial team are always available! https://deathrattlewritersfest.org/editing

We offer personalized feedback on your cover letter and artist bio that you want to polish before sending it out into the world with your work!

We are un-paid editors reading hundreds of submissions monthly for our regular published issues of OROBORO. Charging $80 here helps to offset that time, labor and expertise when reading general submissions. We try to keep our pricing affordable and accessible because we believe in up-and-coming writers, writers outside of a university setting, writers outside of a robust writing community deserve the same time and attention to their work as anyone inside more established writing resources. However; to be transparent about the time spent individually critiquing 8 pieces, we as editors are making $10-$15 an hour, which is to say, below industry standard. We take the reading of and feedback towards yours work seriously and want to take the time to give you the best, most personalized feedback towards your work as we can!
