About / Published Things

Hey everyone, my name is Okala Elesia. 

You probably remember me from the hit TV show, World’s Most Powerful Dads. As you’ll know, that ended in ignominy when it transpired I’m not particularly strong and don’t have any children.

I’m Nigerian-British, grew up in Cornwall, and now live in London. I write about liminal spaces, weird Britain, and all sorts of stuff to be honest. My stories have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, while I was recently commended by the Laura Kinsella Prize. I’m currently studying for my MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck.

Shoot me a message if you wanna collab on something.

Below is a list of recently published things:


‘Have You Heard What’s Under the River?’ in Mechanics’ Institute Review

People That Singin The Molotov Cocktail (vol 8. issue 10)

‘Ghoul’ in Firefly Magazine (issue 1)

‘The Dig’ in The South Bank Review


‘Raul will Answer to his Shareholders’ in Extra Teeth (issue 3)

‘People Are Ugly Everywhere’ in Circus 7 (out of print)

‘Summer In Outer Polsari Lasts One Hundred and Fifty Years’ in Worlds: A Science Fiction Micro Anthology

    while procrastinating over my tax declaration i decided to break up the gray listening to the wave notation series on youtube and doing fair amounts of k. then i stumbled across this…i immediately discarded the plan to watch adventure time and had lots of fun ending up reading your texts.
    may your configuration stays as wonderful as it appears to be! ( ~˘ ³˘)~

      Haha, Hi Hans! Thanks so much for leaving this note. I’m cracking up picturing you navigate the k-waterways, with Ashikawa as your guide, eventually ending up here. And glad you enjoyed the upload! Peace!
