Martin Cathcart Froden writes. He won the 2015 Dundee International Book Prize with his debut novel Devil take the Hindmost which was published in 2016 by Freight Books.

  His stories have been shortlisted for awards including the Bridport Prize and the Bristol Short Story Prize, and his story The Underwater Cathedral won the 2013 BBC Opening Lines competition and has been broadcast on Radio 4 (listen below). 

  In 2017-18 he was Poet in Residence with the National Trust for Scotland, and the resultant collection, Light and other Observations, is forthcoming in 2019.

  He is currently working on a doctorate in creative writing at the University of Glasgow, and he also teaches creative writing at various institutions. He's a Swede by birth but these days he's pretty much as Glaswegian as they come.
