Call for Submissions: Writings about Disability Desirability

Arc Poetry Magazine is seeking writers with disabilities for poetry, interviews, essays and reviews around the theme: "Disability Desirability." We invite artists who live with disability/chronic illness/mental illness and other forms of existence that are impacted by ableism exploring what it means to be in the world and challenge the able-bodied gaze by extending the meaning of wholeness.

The magazine edition will be curated and edited by Therese Estacion, author of Phantompains.

Arc Poetry pays all print and online contributors $50 CAD per page. Open internationally.

Submission guidelines for this call include the following: • Submissions must not exceed three poems. • If you have submitted to Arc‘s general call for submissions, you may still submit work for this issue. Submitting poems for this issue does not count towards the three poems per calendar year limit. • In order to submit two or three poems, you must submit two or three separate files. All poems must be their own submission.

If interested, please email: coordinatingeditor@arcpoetry.ca

Deadline: May 15, 2023.
