In 2018 Jamie received his PhD in English Literature from the University of Glasgow after completing a three year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The resulting book, Wallace and I (2019), is available in ferociously expensive hardback from Routledge.
Since becoming an academic exile, Jamie has been writing essays and fiction and working on his first novel. His work has been published in Electric Literature, Gutter: The Magazine of New Scottish Writing, Barren Magazine, and elsewhere. His story “Letters to Nowhere” won third prize in the Imprint Writing Competition.
