Suze Olbrich is a freelance arts and lifestyle journalist, and the editor of literary magazine, Somesuch Stories


Culturally omnivorous – insatiably curious.

I started out covering music for the likes of Dazed, noisey and The Guardian, before expanding into further arts writing for titles such as AnOther, Riposte, The Independent and The Telegraph, alongside lifestyle features for The Observer, British Airways’ High Life and Easyjet Traveller magazine, among others.

As for current specialities, lets say: contemporary art, dance and photography; good music; banging food and drink, and European and Middle Eastern travel.

Commercial writing clients include: Airbnb, GROHE, Jack Daniels, Twinings, Weber, and Yamaha. (Samples are available on request.)

For the past four years, I’ve also been the editor of globally distributed, literary magazine Somesuch Stories for which I’ve had the privilege of commissioning and editing essays and short stories by some of the finest, rising writing talent on this planet, including: Daisy Johnson, Eli Goldstone, Amy Liptrot, Sophie Mackintosh, Eloghosa Osunde, Alan Trotter and Kieran Yates. Our latest print issue was themed on redemption, and you can read the introduction to it here.

As well as notching up Stack Awards’ nominations in the Best Fiction and Best Non-Fiction categories, Somesuch Stories has been featured in The Observer’s New Review, and on AnOther.com, It’s Nice That, LitHub, and MagCulture as well as on the High Low Show, and Monocle’s The Stack.
