Kris Haddow

A University of Glasgow MLitt Creative Writing graduate, he is currently writing his first novel while researching Lallans and South West Scots representation in publishing in pursuit of their DFA.

For over two decades, Kris has collected fragments of personal writing alongside snippets of published works touching on bereavement—poetry, monologues, diary entries, biographies, fiction. During this project, he plans to interrogate this Appendix of Grief while questioning and exorcising his own complex relationship with memory, loss, trauma, and absence.
