Kalin Terziyski (Bulgarian: Калин Терзийски) is a contemporary Bulgarian writer.

Educated as a psychiatrist, out of necessity for additional loan due to the low wages for young doctors in his home Bulgaria, he started writing in for newspapers and magazines. At the beginning of 2000, he dismissed his medical career and devoted his creative time to writing.

He was one of the winners of the European Union Prize for Literature 2011.[1]
