The next cat to be let out of our line-up bag comes in the form of writer & artist Diriye Osman. Diriye is going to be reading an extract from one of his short stories at our Tropical Storm event in Highgate next month; expect to be dazzled as he opens the show with a sparkling performance!
Diriye Osman is a Somali-born short story writer, visual artist and editor. His fiction and non-fiction has been published by Time Out, Prospect, Kwani?, Attitude, Poetry Review and SCARF, where he worked as the deputy editor. He has just completed a collection of illustrated short stories called ‘Fairytales For Lost Children’ and is currently at work on a series of paintings called ‘The Anima/ Animus Redux.’
