Originally from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, Cailean Steed is a novelist, writer of audio drama and graduate of the MLitt in Creative Writing at University of Glasgow.

They have written a number of short stories, which have appeared in anthologies such as New Writing Scotland 36 and Boudicca Press’s Disturbing the Beast: The Best of Women’s Weird Fiction. Their short story Blind Baggage was longlisted for the 2017 Bare Fiction Prize, and later appeared in Barren Magazine. They also write audio dramas, and were the winner of the 2020 Pen to Print Audioplay Award with their sci-fi drama RealBoy, a futuristic retelling of Pinocchio.

Their debut novel, Home, is now out from Raven Bloomsbury.


Creative Conversations is funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
