Poetry helps us see the world in new and unexpected ways. It helps us understand who we are, and who others are. At Arc Poetry, we believe in the value and power of poetry, and in connecting readers, poets and critics. Please support Arc as we support the ideas and the people behind great poetry.

To arrange a planned gift, talk with your lawyer and include Arc Poetry Society in your will. The Society is the registered not-for-profit organization that publishes Arc Poetry Magazine and supports Arc’s other contributions to the poetry community.
