An International Literature Showcase

Jackie Kay’s ten compelling BAME writers in the UK

Jackie Kay“These ten writers open up the world to you and give you the world back. There’s a worldly-wise wisdom in their work, as well as an abundance of humour. They are bold. They often tackle difficult and dangerous themes with an extraordinary grace and lightness of touch.”

Jackie Kay is a multi-award-winning writer of novels, short stories, plays and television. She was awarded an MBE in 2006, made a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2002 and named Scots Makar in March 2016.
