Olatunde Osinaike is a Nigerian-American poet and software developer originally from the West Side of Chicago. He is the author of the chapbooks Speech Therapy, winner of the 2019 TAR Chapbook Series (forthcoming) and The New Knew (Thirty West Publishing House, forthcoming). A Best of the Net, Bettering American Poetry, and Pushcart Prize nominee, his most recent work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Best New Poets 2018, RHINO, Glass: A Journal of Poetry, Cosmonauts Avenue, Lunch Ticket, Palette Poetry, and Columbia Poetry Review, among other publications. He is also currently on poetry staff at The Adroit Journal. As a heads up, he is probably off rewatching The Office right now for the nth time, but you can find him on Twitter and Instagram at @tundelasoul, when he’s not being as much of an introvert.
