Keside Anosike is a Nigerian-born writer.

He holds a first class degree in Advertising, Public Relations and Media Science from Middlesex University and is an alumni of the Farafina Trust Creative writing workshop.

Raised in a close-knit family, Keside’s awareness of the world is inspired largely by his fundamental understanding of connection; how much illusion of size is contained in the acts and movements that bind people together or pull them apart.

Keside negotiates the world with rare lucidity through creative non-fiction that is interested in telling and retelling the regularity and specificity of a shared human experience. His work accommodates socio-political observations, such as class, gender, race, and queer existences. His work has appeared in several local and international publications.

Keside currently lives in Lagos and is working on his first novel.
