Poet, novelist and writer Kirsty Logan is coming to City for a conversation about her work and a Q&A. Kirsty’s first story collection, The Rental Heart & Other Fairytales, won the Scott Prize, the Polari First Book Prize, and the Saboteur Award.

Her first novel, The Gracekeepers, won a Lambda Literary Award and was selected for the Radio 2 Book Club and the Waterstones Book Club. Her third book, A Portable Shelter, won the Gavin Wallace Fellowship and was published as a limited edition illustrated hardback which sold most of its print run on pre-order. Her novel, The Gloaming, was recently published by Harvill Secker. Her short fiction and poetry has been published in print and online, translated into Japanese and Spanish, recorded for radio and podcasts, exhibited in galleries, and distributed from a vintage Wurlitzer cigarette machine. Kirsty has performed her work at festivals and events all over the world, including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Malaysia, Spain, and all over the UK.

As well as writing fiction, Kirsty also reviews books and works as a writing mentor for the WoMentoring Project. She is currently working on a collection of short horror stories, a series of film projects, and a musical collaboration. She lives in Glasgow.
