Writer / Schrijver

As a philosopher, words are my means to life. I write academic and non-academic texts, from the purely philosophical and applied ethics to articles on human interest. I also enjoy writing fiction, mainly short stories.

book shoot 1I can’t really remember a time I did not write. Stories, poems, satire in school papers, essays, theater pieces, monologues, papers, editorials, plays, columns, reviews. Some can be read here, but if you are interested in a sample of my writing (in English and/or Dutch), academic essays, columns, translation work (to English and/or Dutch, from English/Dutch/German/French), please do not hesitate to contact me at nicole.nobyeni@ gmail.com
