Arc: Canada's National Poetry Magazine invites emerging Ottawa writers to be recognized for their talent through a special award for poets who have not yet been published in book form. The prize is named in honour of the late Diana Brebner, an award-winning, Ottawa-based poet who was devoted to fostering literary talent among new local writers. Entry fee is $14 for up to two poems and includes a one-year subscription to Arc, beginning with the Winter 2007 issue, for yourself or a friend. (If you already have asubscription, you can give your new one-year subscription to a friend. Please include their mailing address.)
