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.
Will Burns was born in London and raised in Buckinghamshire. He didn't finish his English degree, choosing instead to start a band with his brother, releasing two albums. He worked in factories, cleaning windows and painting houses before settling in the music industry. He likes sports and ornithology and is proud to be Poet-In-Residence at Caught By The River and Festival No.6. His poems have been published by Structo Magazine, South Bank Poetry, The Illustrated Ape and the Independent Online, and he has appeared at the Glastonbury, Port Eliot, End of the Road and Green Man Festivals.
