Hello and welcome to After Five!

I’m Suyi Davies Okungbowa, author of fantasy, science fiction and general speculative fiction. I’ve written a few books and stories for adults and younger readers. I’m also a professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Ottawa. After Five is me mulling over stuff connected and unconnected to both those things.

The goal of this newsletter is to connect with friends, readers, fans and peers by:

  1. sharing writing and non-writing tips, ideas, lessons and advice;

  2. offering behind-the-scenes info & updates on my work;

  3. offering recommendations based on what I’m reading, listening to, watching, playing, etc; and

  4. offering readers an open, welcoming space to learn, share and interact.

Stick around for…

Greatest hits include:
