Richard Skinner

I am a published author of three novels (all Faber & Faber), a poetry collection and a poetry pamphlet (both Smokestack) and two books of non-fiction. My novel, 'The Red Dancer', was published in seven languages and my novel, 'The Velvet Gentleman', was shortlisted in France for the Prix Livres & Musiques. I have written many book reviews for the FT and The Guardian and features for other broadsheet newspapers on film and music. I have also written a number of commissions and guest blog posts on a variety of subjects. I have recently edited a poetry anthology. I am Director of the Fiction Programme at Faber Academy.
