For over 30 years, Arc Poetry Magazine has been bringing great poetry to readers in Canada and beyond. At Arc we find the brave new voices. We dig up the dead and too-soon-forgotten. We tackle the burning questions: What, say, is hockey poetry really about? What is with this ghazal fad? And: would you dare to be the next Anon? Arc features poetry that is woozy, yap-happy, cunning and smoking, and prose that offers a new perspective on the verse you thought you knew. Get Arc. Get poems. Get happy!

Important: Submit only once a year.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
