  • Awards
  • David Kinloch was born, raised and educated in Glasgow. He is a graduate of the universities of Glasgow and Oxford and was for many years a teacher of French studies. He currently teaches creative writing and Scottish literature at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. His first collection of poems, entitled Paris-Forfar, was praised by Edwin Morgan in the Scotsman: 'The book is notable for three things: successes in the impossible genre of the prose-poem, ... a trio of lively flytings... and a series of moving elegies for a gay lover dead from AIDS.' Kinloch is the author of four previous collections including Un Tour d’Ecosse (2001) and In My Father’s House (2005), both published by Carcanet, and of many critical works in the fields of French, Translation and Scottish studies. In 2004 he was a winner of the Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Award and in 2006 held a Scottish Writers’ Bursary from the Scottish Arts Council. He was a founder editor of the poetry magazine Verse and has been instrumental in setting up the first Scottish Writers’ Centre.
