Join us as we celebrate Arc Poetry Magazine’s 100th issue!
In this special call, we’re looking for poems that respond to work published in previous issues of Arc. These response poems will be one part of our 100th issues hullabaloo. We are interested in moving forward while glancing back. Some examples of response poems include (but are not limited to!): “after” poems, glosas, centos, golden shovels, and ekphrasis of visual art featured in Arc.
Submit your poems by November 25th, 2022 to be considered.
In your submission, please mention how your poem responds to work previously published in Arc, including the name, poet, and issue number of the piece (poem/essay/image/etc.) to which you are responding.
General submission guidelines include the following:
• Submissions must not exceed three poems.
• During each calendar year, Arc only accepts three poems per poet, and that includes submissions to this call.
• In order to submit two or three poems, you must submit two or three separate files. All poems must be their own submission.
Arc‘s rate for poetry of $50 per page. Payment is issued upon publication along with one free copy of the issue in which the work appears. With acceptance, Arc secures First Canadian Serial Rights, meaning the poems should not appear in any print or digital publication before the release of the issue in which the work appears. All rights will revert to the author upon publication.
Arc cannot promise to respond to inquiries regarding the status of submissions before the completion of a reading period.
