The newest issue of Arc Poetry Magazine celebrates 20 years of the Diana Brebner Prize with poems and retrospectives by twenty past winners, giving readers a look back on winning poems and the impact Brebner left. As Arc’s prose editor Nancy Jo Cullen says, Brebner’s work demonstrates “Community and legacy in action.” This issue also focuses the “How Poems Work” section and new essays on Brebner and her work.

Poetry from Arc’s 2020-2021 Poet-in-Residence Jim Johnstone and his mentees Michael Prior, Amanda Merpaw, Taylor Zantingh, Lucy Yang, Janetter Platana, Sarain Keeshig-Soonias, and Joseph Kidney are included as well.
