Part of Kelly Richardson’s new series of works entitled Pillars of Dawn is currently featured on the cover of the Fall issue of Arc Poetry Magazine.

This spe­cial issue of Arc con­tains poet­ry that wit­ness­es the ruin of the earth’s cli­mate, or rumi­nates on the loss of human life, or hopes for some change and sav­iour before human­i­ty’s com­plete and total col­lapse into obliv­ion. If you think that things can’t get any worse, Arc‘s “Art in the End Times” issue con­tains mul­ti­ple pre­dic­tions for what might come in our grim future.

Oth­er uplift­ing con­tent in Arc 81 includes:

    • Bren Sim­mers, Tanya Evan­son, and Stephen Brockwell’s poet­ic con­fronta­tions of envi­ron­men­tal dis­as­ter;
    • an essay on the apoc­a­lypse that Kather­ine Ley­ton sees us rid­ing towards;
    • stun­ning visu­al art from David McMil­lan, Stéphane Gilot, Steven Orner, and Kel­ly Richard­son; and,
    • a series of lists of books that Arc‘s staff and friends would bring down to the bunker in case of an impend­ing apoc­a­lypse.
