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.
In 2010, the awarded poets are Joe Dunthorne, Annie Katchinska, Sam Riviere and Tom Warner.
If it all goes wrong, midair,
I doubt I could put us down safely in a river.
I suspect I'd slam us nose first into the circuit board
of a densely populated suburb.
If I could, our rescue might be beamed across the globe;
stood on the wing as though we stood on water.
If it all goes wrong,
I doubt I could put us down.
