Michael StewartMichael Stewart is a multi-award winning writer and poet, born and brought up in Salford, who moved to Yorkshire in 1995 and is now based in Bradford. He has written several full length stage plays, one of which, Karry Owky, was joint winner of the King’s Cross Award for New Writing, as well as securing work in radio and television.


He was the winner of the BBC Short Range competition in 2002 and the BBC Alfred Bradley Award in 2003 and his plays have been performed in Bradford, Leeds, Manchester, London, and extensively throughout the country.

His fiction has been published widely in anthologies and magazines, including Route, Leaf Books, Brand Magazine and Aesthetica.  His debut novel, King Crow, was published in January 2011 by Bluemoose Books. In October 2011, the book was awarded the Not the Booker prize by The Guardian newspaper.
