David Ishaya Osu: Poetry Editor


“While not all of us may spend our lives travelling around the world, and some of us may not even leave the corners of our homes, one thing is certain: we all are moving and seeing things as they are. And this is why I believe travel writing is for all of us. Because the world is for all of us. It is indeed a wonder to move, whether near or far.”


David’s poetry is featured in the anthologies Roedleaf Poetry: The African Diaspora Folio, and A Thousand Voices Rising: An Anthology of Contemporary African Poets. He has been Guest Poetry Editor at the James Franco Review, and is a board member of the of the Pan-African literary collective, the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation.
