150 years post-Confederation, we cannot forget Canada's place in the global and local reality of colonization. For our 2017 Annual themed issue, Arc Poetry Magazine wants to talk about Reconciliation, Decolonization, and Nation(s)—from a poet's perspective.
Arc especially encourages submissions from Indigenous poets, but this call—and conversation—is open to all Canadians, along with anyone, from any country, who feels they have something to say. Guest Editor for this issue is Armand Garnet Ruffo. See below for Arc's submission guidelines.
• Arc accepts unsolicited submissions of previously unpublished poems. The deadline for submissions to the 2017 Annual themed issue is July 1st, 2017.
• Submissions must not exceed three poems.
• Our submission manager only accepts one file at a time. In order to submit the files separately you must go through the submission process for each piece you wish to submit. This allows you to provide each submission with the title of your poem and it allows us to group the submissions more easily.
• Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know if a submission is accepted elsewhere.
