ARI Special Issue Call! Now Accepting Submissions for Summer 2022


Poetic Inquiry for Synchrony & Love: A New Order of Gravity

Aligned with the spirit of creative impulse, a generative force, we call for poetic words, poetic images, poetics forms, and poetic arrangements that honour the dynamic dimensions of the full-breath-of-life: birth, death, rebirth—of poplar, sky, grief, wind, and bone. For the special issue entitled, “Poetic Inquiry for Synchrony & Love: A New Order of Gravity,” we invite poetics that explore what is precious, bejeweled; what is refracted, light; what is of or for humility, savouring, and the sacred—with the intention to serve as a curative for catastrophic times. 

We, Dr. Alexandra Fidyk and Dr. Darlene St. Georges, will be guest editors for the Summer 2022 Special Issue of Art|Research International: A Transdisciplinary Journal (ARI). There are three sections of the journal, each with a specific goal, for your consideration: 

  • Art|Research in Action
  • Art|Research Theoretical Musings
  • Art|Research Reviews

This publishing option adheres to the journal’s current structure in style and internal review system. All works submitted here must position poems, poetry, and poetic inquiry in a research context. We ask you to follow the journal’s submission guidelines, except where single line spacing is more effective for poetic expression. Please consult the ARI archives for previously published examples.
