For the premier edition of the Annual in 2010, Arc chose to address the mechanics: What makes poems tick? How do they work? What do they mean? Each of twenty-one poems appearing in the Arc Annual 2010 (which range from ballads, sonnets, concrete poems, nursery rhymes and free verse) is accompanied by an essay by a poet of note, who considers structure, form, craft and content. Leading poets including Stephanie Bolster, Ross Leckie, Roo Borson, George Elliott Clarke and Tim Bowling write on poems by notables as Don Coles, Margaret Avison, Robert Kroetsch, bp Nichol, Jan Zwicky, Alden Nowlan and Michael Ondaatje.
