Paul Kingsnorth is a writer who founded the Dark Mountain Project by accident one day in the pub and is still dealing with the consequences. The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories that civilization tells itself. Seeing that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, Dark Mountain Project wants our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it.

As well as being the Project’s editorial director, he is also the author of two books of non-fiction and a collection of poetry, and a new novel.
