Faber is one of the world’s great independent publishing houses. Since we were founded in 1929, poetry has been at the heart of our publishing, with T. S. Eliot as our first Poetry Editor.
In every generation, Faber has sought to find the very best writers and we are proud to publish the foremost voices in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, film and children’s books, from writers including Sylvia Plath, Samuel Beckett, Ted Hughes, William Golding, Kae Tempest, Seamus Heaney, P. D. James, Natalie Diaz, Tsitsi Dangarembga, Alan Bennett, Edna O’Brien, Simon Armitage, Emma Carroll and Sally Rooney. Thirteen Nobel Laureates and six Booker Prize-winners have been published by Faber, with awards most recently for Kazuo Ishiguro and Anna Burns.
At Faber, we share a belief in the unique power of the published word to transform, to inspire and to challenge. This informs all our in-house activities and extends to our outreach and our partnerships within independent publishing.
Faber is proud to be part of a network of independent publishers and to work with innovative partners to find new ways to promote great writing across the world.
