'Maria Fusco is one on the wittiest, most adroit and vibrant writers in the UK.' Richard Skinner

I am a Belfast-born working class writer based in Scotland and Professor of Interdisciplinary Writing at the University of Dundee, with a PhD awarded from the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at The University of Edinburgh. I write fiction, critical and theoretical texts and edit publications and my work is published internationally and translated into ten languages. I've been awarded an Engender Fellowship (Royal Opera House), a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship (Scottish Book Trust), am a Jerwood Creative Catalyst and an Hawthornden Fellow. I've been an invited Writer-in-Residence at Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Kadist Art Foundation, Paris and Whitechapel Gallery, London.

My most recent works are: Mollspeak (2021) at Museum of Home, ECZEMA! (2018-19) 'An extraordinary text... a study of the body’s miscellany of culturally freighted products and vulgarities" Holly Pester & Give Up Art (2018) "After a book like this, most nonfiction seems curiously unaware of what writing can be" James Elkins & Legend of the Necessary Dreamer (2017) 'A new classic of female philosophical fiction' Chris Kraus & Master Rock (2015) 'A primal confrontation with embodied forces.' Dave Keenan.
