Melvin Burgess (born 25 April 1954) is a British writer of children's fiction. He became famous in 1998 with the publication of Junk, about heroin-addicted teenagers on the streets of Bristol.

Burgess won the annual Carnegie Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book by a British author.
