Naomi Ishiguro

Naomi Ishiguro was born in London, in 1992. She is currently fine-tuning her first collection of stories, titled Escape Routes, which will be coming out with Tinder Press in the spring of 2020. She has recently completed the University of East Anglia’s MFA Creative Writing Programme, has a First Class (Hons) BA in English from UCL, and spent two years in her early 20s working as a bookseller and bibliotherapist at Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath.

Naomi is interested in bittersweet humour, in characters who see the world with broken logic, and in the absurd and the surreal. The stories in Escape Routes are all slightly magical, and all play on themes of traps, flight and freedom.
