Faber New Poets 5
Funded by Arts Council England, Faber New Poets aims to identify and support emerging talents at an early stage in their careers. Through a programme of mentorship, bursary and pamphlet publication, the scheme offers four poets a year the time, guidance and encouragement they require to help in the development of their work in the longer term. Joe Dunthorne was born and brought up in Swansea. His debut novel, Submarine, published by Hamish Hamilton, won the Curtis Brown prize. It has been translated in to nine languages and a film of the book is in production. His poetry has been published in Poetry Review, New Welsh Review and Voice Recognition. He performs regularly and co-organises Homework, a monthly night of literary miscellany. He lives in London.
