Michael Horovitz (4 April 1935 – 7 July 2021) was a German-born British poet, editor, visual artist and translator who was a leading part of the Beat Poetry scene in the UK. In 1959, while still a student, he founded the "trail-blazing" literary periodical New Departures, publishing experimental poetry, including the work of William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and many other American and British beat poets.

In 1969, Penguin Books published Horovitz's Children of Albion anthology.
