Alison Ojany explores human contradictions, paradoxes and wounds. She applies her speculative fiction work, with a preference for horror as a genre, as a surface that reflects on and refracts human absurdities, fears, insecurities, and hauntings. She draws on her plural Kenyan roots to engage with some themes that preoccupy the world that also interest her, ranging from racial injustice to climate change. 
Alison is also the co-founder of arts for social change collective 5 Jordan alongside Richard Ali and Rafaeet Aliyu.
