Magazine Stand :: Arc Poetry – Issue 100
Congratulations to Arc Poetry on their 100th issue of publishing emerging and established poets from across Canada and beyond! Editor Emily Stewart says, “I hope you consider the unrecorded, unquantifiable creative efforts that have gone into this issue and the ninety-nine before it. I hope you recognize the talent and labour that make this magazine happen. And I hope you realize, without any uncertainty, that one hundred issues of Arc Poetry would not have been possible without you, without the literary community that has grown alongside Arc.”
This issue features the 2022 Diana Brebner Prize winner and honorable mention; new work from Arc’s 2021-22 Poet in Residence Annick MacAskill, and a selection of work by her mentees; new poems from Billy-Ray Belcourt, Lorna Crozier, Selina Boan, and more; work from Parliamentary Poet Laureate Louise Bernice Halfe; a translation feature curated by Katia Grubisic, including new translations of Nicole Brossard by Erin Moure; new essays, including by Lakshmi Gill, one of the first women members of the League of Canadian Poets; feature reviews that bring books previously reviewed in Arc into new conversations; and two “How Poems Work” columns by Bardia Sinaee on Sarah Venart and Eric Folsom on John Barton.
