Directeur des éditions Bayard, il a codirigé le chantier de nouvelle traduction de la Bible associant des spécialistes des textes et des langues bibliques à des écrivains contemporains (Bayard, 2001).

Frédéric Boyer a publié une trentaine de livres aux éditions P.O.L (poèmes, récits, essais et traductions). Il a reçu le prix du Livre Inter (1993) pour son roman Des choses idiotes et douces, et le prix Jules Janin de l’Académie française pour sa nouvelle traduction des Confessions de saint Augustin (Les aveux, 2008). Il a traduit les Sonnets et Richard II de William Shakespeare pour le Festival d’Avignon (2010), ainsi qu’une adaptation du Roi Lear avec Olivier Cadiot (2013). Ses textes dramatiques, Phèdre les oiseaux, ou Rappeler Roland (monologue et nouvelle traduction de la Chanson de Roland) ont été créés au théâtre.

The Language of Inquiry (California, 2000) rassemble une sélection de ses essais critiques. Parmi ses nombreuses collaborations, on peut citer Qúê Trân, une composition musicale de John Zorn avec un texte de Hejinian, deux livres en collaborations avec la peintre Emilie Clark (The Traveler and the Hill and the Hill and The Lake) et sa participation au film documentaire expérimental Letters Not About Love, réalisé par Jacki Ochs.
