Arq is a micropress based in Portland, Oregon. We publish an annual journal with a rotating, animalistic theme. Each issue revolves around the collective noun for a group of animals and explores the multiple meanings we assign to words. The inaugural release, Flock, was a serendipitous and cathartic response to the political climate of 2016. Founded in 2017, the editors of Arq Press are all graduates of the IPRC Prose Program.
