James Fenton | Granta Magazine

James Fenton

James Fenton has published over twenty books as a poet, journalist and critic. After winning an Eric Gregory Award in 1973 for his poetry collection Terminal Moraine, he used his prize money to travel to South East Asia. He has contributed many times to Granta since his first appearance in the magazine in 1983, and his long-form journalism often formed the centrepiece for an issue. He was Oxford Professor of Poetry from 1994–1999.
