Warren Ambrose Dibble (1930/1931 – 27 July 2014) was a New Zealand poet and playwright.

Dibble was awarded the Robert Burns Fellowship from the University of Otago in 1969.[1] Ralph Hotere, who was the Frances Hodgkins Fellow at Otago also in 1969,[2] incorporated some of Dibble's poems into his artwork.[3] Dibble wrote plays for television, theatre and radio, including Killing of Kane, based on the deeds of Titokowaru in Taranaki in the 1860s,[3] the anti-Vietnam war theatrical cartoon Operation Pigstick,[4][5] the one-off tele-drama Double Exposure,[6] Lord, Dismiss Us… and Lines to M.[7]

Dibble moved to Sydney in the 1970s and died there in 2014.[8]
