If you subscribe to Canadian literary magazines, you’ll doubtlessly have seen Prairie Fire‘s Spring issue, “Work Matters“. Discussions about livelihood and labour and all of the things poets do to keep finding time to write are discussions that Arc wants to keep going. We’re thinking about the variations that “labour” might manifest in caregiving, activism, volunteering, and other traditional and non-traditional forms, as well as the ways work and poetry intersect with other aspects of identity. Send us your poems on labour and livelihood however they appear in your life.
Submissions for this special themed issue will close June 15. See below for Arc‘s submission guidelines.
• Arc accepts unsolicited submissions of previously unpublished poems. The deadline for submissions to the 2019 Annual themed issue is June 15th, 2019, at 11:59 PM (EDT).
• Submissions must not exceed three poems.
• Our submission manager only accepts one file at a time. In order to submit the files separately you must go through the submission process for each piece you wish to submit. This allows you to provide each submission with the title of your poem and it allows us to group the submissions more easily.
• Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know if a submission is accepted elsewhere.
