Yashar Alishenas

Writer, Swedish, Iranian

Yashar comes from a back­ground in lan­guage teach­ing and writing/producing short films. His char­ac­ters tend to become attached to goals they obsess­ively pur­sue to the det­ri­ment of every­one else, includ­ing them­selves. Cur­rently he also works as pod­cast dram­at­urg. Pre­vi­ously he stud­ied philo­sophy, social sci­ences and lit­er­at­ure in Heidel­berg and Oxford.
