Submissions due the last day of each month
In April 2020, Arc began a monthly prize – a 50/50 cash prize, a vintage object d’art (loosely interpreted) and the all the honour and respect that comes with winning the Arc Award of Awesomeness.
The February contest will be judged by Arc’s Newsletter Editor, Margo LaPierre.
From Lisa Robertson’s relentless Cinema of the Present to Deborah-Anne Tunney’s Hitchcockian A Different Wolf, poets and the cinema make for a great pairing, as good as buttery popcorn and sweet soda. Whether evoking the movie theatre; casting back to Hollywood icons, villains, or drama; or experimenting with form by splicing poetry with film, send us your cinematic poems.
