Welcome to Arc Poetry Magazine

For over 30 years, Arc Poetry Magazine has been bringing great poetry to readers in Canada and beyond. At Arc, we find the brave new voices. We feature poetry that is woozy, cunning, shearing and wildlike, and prose that offers new perspectives on the verse you thought you knew. We dig up the dead and the too-soon-forgotten. We tackle burning questions, and sometimes ignite them: What, say, is hockey poetry really about? What is with this ghazal fad? Would you dare to be the next Anon? When is a found poem a find, and when should it just be put back? Find out by exploring the wonderful world of words—with Arc!
