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 and her third book, A Portable Shelter, won the Gavin Wallace Fellowship. Her most recent novel, The Gloaming, a queer mermaid love story set on a remote island that slowly turns its inhabitants to stone’ has been described as ‘the lesbian anti-fairytale we need to read’.

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.

In this event, Kirsty will reflect on the relationship between women and water in her writing and her talk will be followed by a Q&A, chaired by Dr Hetta Howes, and a drinks reception.
