Arc Poetry Magazine’s Winter 2017 Issue

The new issue of Arc is harder than packed snow, filled with wintry poetry and warm, thoughtful essays.


Beginning with an interview and seven poems by Jan Zwicky, this issue also features the celebration of Robyn Sarah’s tenure as our 2015 – 2016 Poet-in-Residence.


With an introduction to Sarah’s work by Madhur Anand, you can also read twelve miniature poems from Sarah’s series “Finders Keepers Losers Weepers.” Sarah also selected six poets that she worked with during her residency to showcase their poems.


This issue also contains an essay on language and living abroad from Josh Nadeau, a selection from a new translation of Denmark’s Ursula Andkjær Olsen, and Lucas Crawford’s review to put Transgender Zines in perspective.


Dig yourself out of winter with:


  • Prose poems by andrea bennett and John Wall Barger;
  • Harold Rhenisch’s review of Canadian poetry that references classical Greek modes; and,
  • Photography that questions self-discovery from the visual artist Meryl McMaster.
