Susan McKay

Susan McKay is a writer from Derry. From a Protestant background, she is now a humanist and feminist. Her journalism has won many awards and been widely anthologised. Her books include Sophia’s Story, a biography of a child abuse survivor, Without Fear, a history of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, and Bear in Mind These Dead, which deals with the aftermath of the Northern Ireland conflict for those bereaved.  In 2000 she published “Northern Protestants - An Unsettled People”, and she has just published a sequel to that book, “Northern Protestants- On Shifting Ground”  (Blackstaff, 2021).  The Irish Times said the book “seamlessly weaves together personal stories and political events with deep emotional intelligence.”  She is writing a book about borders, for which she received an Arts Council NI major individual award and a bursary from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.
