Arc publishes contemporary poetry from new and established writers from the UK and abroad, specialising in the work of international poets writing in English and the work of overseas poets in translation.
Arc Publications was established by Tony Ward in 1969. Over forty years on, he runs the press with fellow director Angela Jarman, from a converted textile mill on the Yorkshire-Lancashire border in the north of England, producing upwards of 20 new titles a year. Arc still adheres to its founding principles: to introduce the best of new talent to a UK readership, including voices from overseas that would otherwise remain unheard in this country, and to remain at the cutting edge of world poetry.
