About
Originally a literary magazine founded in 1962, Carcanet’s list now includes new writers from all over the world as well as major authors from the twentieth and earlier centuries, figures about whom readers and writers need to know if they are to get a hold on the Modern and its aftermaths. Carcanet enjoys Arts Council support and can range more widely than commercial publishers dare to: dedicated to discovery, appraisal and reappraisal, Carcanet is a unique survivor in the precarious world of literary imprints. Editorial continuity has generated a list of deep coherence and innovation, not only among the authors rediscovered but also among the new authors published. 2019 was Carcanet's 50th year of publishing; jubilee celebrations continue until summer 2020.
