"There is tenderness in Groulx; there is beauty alongside difficulty. But he has thunderbolts to throw–to illuminate consciousness and rock consciences–and he throws them, to overthrow complacency.

We celebrate the launch of ARC Poetry Magazine’s annual themed issue with readings from four acclaimed poets.

Joshua Whitehead’s new collection,   full-metal indigiqueer , focuses on a hybridized Trickster character named Zoa who brings together the organic (the protozoan) and the technologic (the binaric) in order to re-beautify and re-member queer Indigeneity.

In The Windigo Chronicles , David Groulx seamlessly weaves the spiritual with the ordinary and the present with the powerful voices of the past. He speaks for the spirit, determination, and courage of Aboriginal people, compelling readers to confront cruel reality with his sincere and inspiring vision. 

Deeply immersed in Norval Morrisseau’s life story, and possessing thorough knowledge of the Ojibway storytelling traditions which grounded so much of the artist’s beliefs and creativity, Armand Garnet Ruffo provides fresh poetic interpretations of the most renowned and striking works of one of Canada’s most celebrated painters in his collection The Thunderbird Poems .

Shannon Webb-Campbell’s Still No Word seeks the appearance of the self in others and the recognition of others within the self. Patient, searching, questioning, and at times heartbreaking—these poems reveal the deep past within the present tense and the interrelations that make our lives somehow both whole and unfinished.
