Submission Deadline Extended in light of Malware Attack on the Arc Website

Arc Poetry Magazine was going to stop accepting unso­licited poetry submissions on June 1st, 2016. However, our website was hacked by malware over the weekend, so there’s been a change of plans.

You can still submit via Arc’s Submittable, and once the website is completely restored, all interested poets will have an extra two days to submit their work for general consideration. What will that new deadline’s be? We aren’t sure yet, so keep watching our social media more info on the website situation.

Submissions to Arc’s 2016 annual themed issue “Art In The End Times” will close on Friday, June 3rd, 2016.
