Jamie Redgate grew up on the north edge of Scotland.
In 2018 he 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. He has written about Japan and Japanese literature, contemporary American fiction, religion, video games, and veganism, and has been published in Electric Literature, Extra Teeth, Gutter, Books and Bao, and elsewhere. His story “Letters to Nowhere” won third prize in the 2018 Imprint Writing Competition.
