The first title was published in 1995 and since then in its first dozen years, it has published over 50 titles. Now with publishing associates in three continents and offices/outlets in the United Kingdom & Europe, North America, and South Asia, it is global and contemporary in scope.
Aark Arts publishes fine literature & the arts — poetry, literary fiction & non-fiction, translation, drama, spoken work compact disc, photography, art, anthology, journal and magazine.
Aark Arts believes in the integrity of the creative artist's personal and distinctive voice and vision as its essential focus.
