Arc Poetry Annual 2011 will explore this poetic habit in-depth, with essays examining the best (and perhaps the worst) ekphrastic Canadian poems; content exploring the lure, the payoffs, the pitfalls and the impacts of this poetic method; and a selection of new poems on works held in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
That’s where you come in: Send us your new ekphrastic poems to be considered for this special issue of Arc.
- Poems must relate specifically to a work of art held in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
- Poems must be previously unpublished and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
- The work of art that relates to each submitted poem must by identified by artist, title, medium and year made.
- Please otherwise follow our regular submission guidelines
