My name is John Gerard Fagan and I am a writer from Glasgow. I am the author of Fish Town, a memoir about struggling for work in Scotland and deciding to leave everything behind to teach in a Japanese fishing town. I have published close to 100 short stories, poems, essays, and articles in a wide variety of genre, including literary, horror, sci-fi, humour, and crime.
I taught Creative Writing and Literature at Meikai University, Life and Academic Writing at Heriot-Watt University, and English and Creative Writing at primary, secondary, and special needs schools in Japan.
I have also designed and led several Creative Writing courses all over the world, and performed short story and poetry readings.
