Eloghosa Osunde is a Nigerian writer and visual artist whose work often explores mental health, sexuality and the psychology of identity and interpersonal intimacies.

Eloghosa graduated from the University of Nottingham, UK in 2015. She is an alumna of the Farafina Creative Writing Workshop (2015), the Caine Prize Workshop (2018) and the filmmaking and screenwriting programs at New York Film Academy. Following the Farafina workshop, her selection of vignettes ‘Shapes’ was edited and published online by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. As part of the Writivism Mentorship Program, Eloghosa worked with 2016 Caine Prize winner Lididumalingani Mqombothi on her story story ‘And Morning Will Come,’ which was later longlisted for the 2017 Writivism Short Story Prize. She's since been published in the Writivism and Caine Prize anthologies, as well as on Catapult and Longreads.

Eloghosa's visual art work is experimentative. Employing the use of fiction, her work challenges reality by bending time and space to achieve a surreal overall effect. Her visual art series 'And Now We Have Entered Broken Earth' has been exhibited across four continents so far, twice solo (once in Lagos and then in Russia); selected for the New York Portfolio Review and for Photoville's EmergiCubes (2017), as curated by The New York Times’ James Estrin and David Gonzalez. She was recently awarded a 2017 Miles Morland Scholarship to work on her debut novel and is now represented by the Wylie Agency.
