About Us

Since 1929, Faber & Faber has helped writers from around the world to find their voice. Today, we bring readers to the brightest new authors, across every discipline, just as we have done for some of the best-loved names of the 20th century – people like TS Eliot, James Joyce, Sylvia Plath and Samuel Beckett.

The best new writing, every year, for 85 years.

Faber Academy tutors

One of the original publishing houses to be founded in London's famous literary quarter, Bloomsbury, Faber remains family-owned and fiercely independent. Today it is a thoroughly modern business, still based off London's Bloomsbury Square, still finding, developing and promoting the best new writing. As one of the great publishers, there is no one better placed to understand what a writer needs.

We know that what writers want to do is to write. They want support and they want structure, but all to one end: to write more, and write better.

That's why, on a Faber Academy writing course, you will always be focused on your own work. Because you have your own voice and your own stories, your own aims and experiences.

It's why you can expect, every time you leave the Faber offices, to come away with something new to show: a new short story written on a weekend course, or three new poems workshopped with the best tutors, or pages of your prose, honed with the help of a small group of classmates.
