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.
Arc Publications has received s significant amount of recognition in recent years, including being listed as one of The New York Times "Best Poetry Books of 2010" for their translation from the Estonian.
