Kosoko Jackson

Kosoko Jackson is a digital media specialist, focusing on digital storytelling, email, social and SMS marketing, and a freelance political journalist. Occasionally, his personal essays and short stories have been featured on Medium, Thought Catalog, The Advocate, and some literary magazines. When not writing YA novels that champion holistic representation of black queer youth across genres, he can be found obsessing over movies, drinking his (umpteenth) London Fog, or spending far too much time on Twitter. His YA debut, Yesterday Is History, which came out in 2021, was published by SourceBooks Fire and his adult #OwnVoices queer Romcom, I’m So (Not) Over You, will come out in 2022, by Berkley Romance.
