Bewketu Seyoum is an Ethiopian artist, author, and writer who is Brown University's International Writers Project Fellow for the 2015-16 scholastic year. Conceived in Markus, Ethiopia, and most as of late an occupant of Addis Ababa, he is the writer of four volumes of verse, two books, two assortments of short fiction, and various papers written in his local language, Amharic. Regarded as Ethiopian Best Novelist of the Year in 2008 and Best Young Author in 2009, he much of the time utilizes humor in his work to introduce strategically and socially untouchable subjects once in a while publicized in the Ethiopian open circle. Booker confronted expanding provocation in Ethiopia in view of his work for a few presently restricted news associations. In 2012, he was assaulted and seriously beaten by a gang of strict aficionados in light of an article he expounded on the Ethiopian holy person Abuse Tabla Payment.
