Eloghosa Osunde is a Nigerian writer and multidisciplinary artist. 

An alumna of the Farafina Creative Writing Workshop (2015), New York Film Academy (2017) and the Caine Prize Workshop (2018), Eloghosa's short story ‘And Morning Will Come,’ was longlisted for the 2017 Writivism Short Story Prize and her writing has since been published by multiple publications including Paris Review, Gulf Coast, Georgia Review, Guernica, Catapult & Berlin Quarterly. Eloghosa's visual art has also appeared in Vogue, The New York Times and Paper Magazine. She is a 2019 Lambda Literary Fellow, a 2020 MacDowell Colony Fellow and the 2021 prose judge of Fugue Journal's annual writing contest.

Between creating book covers and art prints for fashion collections, writing monologues for theatre festivals, and building immersive mixed-media exhibitions, Eloghosa's work honors medium as an integral part of artmaking.  She situates her visual art in the overlap between fiction, photography and painting. Through a combination of manual and digital processes, her work tests the limits of reality (who defines it? is it singular? does it matter?) by locating protagonists in intangible, alternate realms where the granular details of time and setting melt to a blur. Her visual art has been exhibited across four continents so far - twice solo; selected for the New York Portfolio Review; for Photoville's EmergiCubes (2017) and most recently exhibited at the National Museum in Lagos, Nigeria. Eloghosa was awarded a 2017 Miles Morland Scholarship to write her debut work of fiction and the 2021 Plimpton Prize for Fiction.  She is represented by the Wylie Agency and the author of VAGABONDS! which will be published in 2022 by Riverhead Books (US), Fourth Estate (UK) and Farafina Books (NG).

When not in their work, Eloghosa can be found on a dancefloor somewhere, moving into morning.
