Arc Poetry Magazine is pleased to announce its 20th annual Poem-of-the-Year contest is open to all poets. The grand prize is $5000. The deadline is February 1,2016.
Arc’s annual competition, among the richest in the country, has gotten a little richer with the addition of a $500 award for the poem selected as Honourable Mention. There are other changes. The shortlist has been reduced from 25 to 10, but shortlisted poems will be published in Arc’s print magazine as well as online, and paid the regular publication fee. The popular People’s Choice award will continue.
The entry fee, which allows two poems and includes a subscription to Arc, has been raised slightly to $35. However, earlybird entries, submitted before January 1st, can enter a third poem at no additional cost. Arc encourages online entries, but will continue to accept mail submissions for 2015-16.
Arc’s Poem-of-the-Year contest started in 1995 and attracts submissions from around the world. Previous winners have included Patricia Young, Shane Neilson, Jacob MacArthur Mooney, Bren Simmers and many others.
