Abstract: We determine the smooth locus and the locus of canonical singularities in the Cornalba compactification $\overline {S}_g$ of the moduli space $S_g$ of spin curves, i.e., smooth curves of genus $g$ with a theta characteristic. Moreover, the following lifting result for pluricanonical forms is proved: Every pluricanonical form on the smooth locus of $\overline {S}_g$ extends holomorphically to a desingularisation of $\overline {S}_g$.
