The Faber Academy

One of the more progressive independent publishers in the UK is Faber & Faber. In October 2008 they launched a programme called The Faber Academy – a series of creative writing courses and live events lasting from just one day to six months.

“Committed to innovation, the Faber Academy’s programme has an international as well as a UK focus and is dedicated to delivering high-quality writing courses and inspirational events.

Faber Academy’s events are devised and delivered by the foremost practitioners in their fields. The writing courses, which vary from 1-day workshops to 6-month mentoring schemes, provide unrivalled expertise on, and unique insights into, the fields of literature, film, theatre and music.

In addition to the courses listed on the website we are currently finalising the Autumn 2010 season of courses and events. If you would like to be the first to hear about the Faber Academy’s exciting new programme please do join the Faber Academy mailing list and we will be in touch shortly.”
The Faber Academy programmes take place in London, Edinburgh, Dublin and more recently Toronto. Faber have just announced their planned programmes over the coming months through to October and you can find details here on such courses as Writing A Novel from Start to Finish, Becoming a Poet and Writing a Life.
