Hello! I'm Kirsty Logan, an award-winning, widely-published writer of short fiction and journalism. My first book, The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales, is out now.

I am a writer, book reviewer, and writing mentor. I also write a regular column on the X-Files for The Female Gaze.

My short fiction and poetry has been published in print and online, recorded for radio and podcasts, and exhibited in galleries.

My second book, The Gracekeepers, will be published in Spring 2015 by Harvill Secker in the UK, Hogarth in the US, and HarperCollins in Canada.

I'm 30 and live in Glasgow, where I mostly hang out with my girlfriend Annie and our rescue dog Rosie, read ghost stories, drink coffee, make things for my flat, listen to riot grrrl, & wish I was closer to the sea.


The Rental Heart is a Winner!

I'm honoured that The Rental Heart has won the the Saboteur Award for Best Short Story Collection. Huge thank yous to everyone who voted for it – I really appreciate it.

The Rental Heart is Longlisted!

How exciting – The Rental Heart was longlisted for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award! It's a great and varied list, so if you're looking to branch out and read more short stories, this is a great place to start.

For Books’ Sake

The rather wonderful For Books' Sake interviewed me on writing my first novel, becoming a grown-up, and my 'movie moment'.
