Writer and journalist Kirstin Innes reading and in conversation

Kirstin Innes is an award-winning writer and journalist from Scotland. She has published two works of fictions. Fishnet (2015) won The Guardian Not The Booker Prize 2015, and Scabby Queen (2020) was praised by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as a ‘literary triumph’.

When she’s not writing, Innes works as a journalist and freelance arts PR. She has written for The List, The Scotsman, The Herald, The Independent, and The Pool. In 2007 and 2011, she won the Allen Wright Award for Excellence in Arts Journalism. In 2007, 2008 & 2010 she was nominated for Feature Writer of the Year at the PPA Scottish Magazine Awards.

Creative Conversations is programmed by the University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme and funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
