Tony Ward

Tony Ward, friend and publisher of the Scottish poet Ivor Cutler, is Managing Editor / Editorial Director of Arc Publications. He founded the Press in 1969, and over thirty-five years on, now runs it with fellow director Angela Jarman and an Editorial Board of three, producing upwards of 25 new titles a year. He still adheres to his 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 contemporary literature. Never willing to compromise, nor afraid to take risks, he continues to be the inspiration and source of energy behind the enterprise that he established.
