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 both connected and unconnected to those two things.
The goal of this newsletter is simple: to connect with friends, readers, fans and peers by: (1) sharing writing and non-writing advice, ideas, tips & lessons; (2) offering behind-the-scenes info & updates on my work; (3) offering recommendations based on what I’m reading, listening to, watching or playing; and (4) offering readers an open, welcoming space to learn, share and interact.
Stick around for…
craft and non-craft how-to’s like the How to Author Like a Strategist series and On Fiction Genres and the Elements That Power Them;
annual exclusive Suyiverse Reports on what to expect from me each year.
