Arc up for two National Magazine Awards!

With its partner in Quarc-ey folly The New Quarterly, Arc is up for two National Magazine Awards.

Harry Thurston (“Ova Aves”) and Matthew Holmes (“The Failing of Purity”), whose poems were published in the science-themed Quarc issue (Arc 66, summer 2011), are finalists in the poetry category for the 35th annual National Magazine Awards. Congratulations to both, and to their fellow finalists Lisa Robertson, Shane Neilson, Marilyn Bowering, Patrick Friesen and Kerry-Lee Powell.


The 2012 National Magazine Awards gala will be held in Toronto on June 7th.


Prove the theory of poetic relativity: travel back through time get Quarc.
