Name of creator
The literary magazine The Anglo-Welsh Review started under the name Dock Leaves in 1949, but changed its name in 1957. It was founded in Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, with the purpose of publishing work by Welsh writers in the English language. Raymond Garlick became the magazine's first editor, making an important contribution to the study of Anglo-Welsh literature. In 1961, Roland Mathias became the second editor. He had fewer contacts with Welsh-language writers and developed the magazine as a journal of the arts in Wales including studies of Welsh composers and painters. Subsequent editors were Gillian Clarke and Greg Hill. From 1949 until 1988 the Anglo-Welsh Review was published by the Five Arches Press in Tenby, twice yearly at first and then three times a year under the auspices of the Welsh Arts Council. In 1988, the Anglo-Welsh Review ceased publication. Its successor is the New Welsh Review.
