Anthony Howell

Anthony Howell is a poet and novelist. His first book of poems, Inside the Castle, was published in 1969. In 1986 His poems have appeared in The New Statesman, The Spectator and The Times Literary Supplement. Articles on visual art, dance, performance and poetry have appeared in many publications including The Fortnightly Review, Art Monthly, The London Magazine, and Harpers & Queen. He is a Hawthornden fellow and in 1997 he was short-listed for a Paul Hamlyn Award for his poetry. His versions of the Silvae of Statius have been well received and Plague Lands, his versions of the poems of Iraqi poet Fawzi Karim, were a Poetry Book Society Recommendation for 2011. He is UK editor of Grey Suit Editions. He has recorded poems for The Poetry Archive. His latest book of Poems is From Inside, the High Window Press. He has worked in Wandsworth, Wormwood Scrubs and Brixton, teaching art and creative writing to inmates: an experience he considers to have been life-changing.

A former dancer with the Royal Ballet, and now a respected teacher of the tango, Howell was founder and director of The Theatre of Mistakes, which created notable performances worldwide in the seventies and eighties - at venues such as the Paris Biennale, the Sydney Biennale, the Paula Cooper Gallery, the Theater for the New City (NY) and at the Tate and the Haywood. Play-scripts of these performances are now being published by Grey Suit Editions.
