The magazine and imprint Akros began in late 1965, when the first issue, a small yellow journal, emerged from Bishopbriggs, with Duncan Glen as editor, typesetter and designer knew exactly what he wanted his distinctive creation to be, bringing forgotten poems by Hugh MacDiarmid to a new audience. As Akros gained momentum over the years, the visual appeal and ambition of the journal noticeably increased with striking covers. It ran for 51 issues, from 1965 to 1983 and managed to publish myriad poets and writers, often long before they'd made a name for themselves.
