My name’s Mark Blacklock. I’m a writer, lecturer and researcher. My debut novel, I’M JACK, was published by Granta in early 2015. My new novel, HINTON, was published in hardback by Granta in April 2020. I have various collaborative projects on the go and am always up for commissions. For all fiction inquiries please contact my agent, Anna Webber at United Agents.
For the past six years I’ve worked in the English Department at Birkbeck College, University of London. I convened the MA in Cultural and Critical Studies and taught courses on New Directions in Cultural Studies and Science Fiction, among others, during that time. I now teach on the MA Creative and Critical Writing.
Before becoming a crusty academic, I was a freelance journalist, editor and researcher for over a decade and have darkened the halls of many publications and institutions in that time but I started out at Bizarre magazine, for whom I was once a human cannonball.
If you want to get in touch directly, please email: mjblacklock [@] gmail.com. I’d be interested to hear from you. I’m on twitter @drblacklock but I’m weaning myself off it.
