Arc 73: Canada’s Up-and-At-You Poetry Magazine

Arc 73 Winter 2014

Emerg­ing tal­ents, ones-to-watch, and debuts. You’ll find them all in Arc’s up-and-com­ers issue, now on news­stands.

In this lat­est issue of Arc Poetry Mag­a­zine, some of Canada’s most estab­lished poets—award-winners, edi­tors, cre­ative writ­ing teach­ers, and men­tors among them—introduce up-and-com­ing poets that you’ll want to watch. Find out what writ­ers such as John Bar­ton, Medrie Pur­d­ham, and Priscila Uppal have to say about Ben Ladouceur, Cas­sidy McFadzean, and Leigh Nash—just some of the emerg­ing tal­ents you’ll read about in Arc 73.

The win­ter 2014 issue also fea­tures a selec­tion of new work by acclaimed poet Tim Bowl­ing, Arc’s Poet-in-Res­i­dence for 2012–2013. Rus­sell Thorn­ton offers a review of Tim’s work by way of intro­duc­tion, and Tim’s con­fes­sion of how much his work draws on that very simple/utterly com­plex notion of love will come as no sur­prise to any­one who has read the work of this remark­able Cana­dian poet over the past two decades. Round­ing out our Poet-in-Res­i­dence fea­ture is a selec­tion of work by eight poets who Tim men­tored over the past year.

Other, not-be-missed high­lights from Arc 73 include:

• the lat­est reviews, which also con­cen­trate on emerg­ing tal­ents, focus­ing on first books;
• excerpts from a graphic-novel-in-poetry by Anita Lahey and Pauline Con­ley;
• poems by Louise Halfe, San­dra Rid­ley, Paul Ver­meer­sch, and Leslie Vyren­hoek; and
• inno­v­a­tive col­lages and full-colour art­work by visual artist Kris­ti­ina Lahde.
