Rat’s Ass Review was created by David M. Harris, who served as editor through 2014.
In 2015 Mr. Harris was kind enough to pass the mantle to Roderick Bates, who is the current editor. (And yes, I know that it is poor form to publish one’s own poetry. All I can say is that I didn’t; David published the two poems of mine which appear here.)
Writers who have provided wisdom, guidance, editorial insight, encouragement, and much-needed hugs include Pam Bernard, Joseph Citro, Pat Fargnoli, and Martha Silano.
Original drawings are by John Pierard. Other artwork is credited on the page where the art appears.
Every poetry magazine needs a Godfather. Ours is Joseph Citro.
