I’m Alistair, a South African writer currently based in Cape Town.
My short stories have appeared in Queer Africa II, a pan-African LGBTQI+ anthology that was shortlisted for a Lambda Award in 2018, Brittle Paper, New Contrast, The Kalahari Review, Kabaka Magazine, Penny, The Other, and Queer Africa: Selected Stories.
My non-fiction has been published in Financial Mail, Daily Maverick, MarkLives, City Press, Mambaonline and GQ South Africa.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University in New York (2018) and an MA in Politics from Edinburgh University (2007).
Mackay, incidentally, rhymes with sky.
