Margaret Kennedy (23 April 1896 – 31 July 1967) was an English novelist and playwright.

Born in London, she attended Cheltenham Ladies' College prior to reading History at Somerville College, Oxford. She is perhaps best-remembered for her 1924 novel The Constant Nymph, but received considerable critical acclaim for other works, most notably Troy Chimneys, for which she was awarded the 1953 James Tait Black Memorial Prize.

The Constant Nymph in her own adaptation was a hugely successful West End play, which opened at the New Theatre, with Noel Coward and Edna Best in September 1926. Noel Coward had a nervous breakdown during the run and was replaced by John Gielgud. It was adapted for the screen in 1928 by Adrian Brunel and Alma Reville, directed by Brunel and Basil Dean, and starring Ivor Novello, Mabel Poulton and Benita Hume.

Her later drama included Escape Me Never in 1934, written for and starring Elisabeth Bergner who also subsequently appeared in the film version for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.
