Frederik Willem Daem

After completing secondary school, the Brussels-based author Frederik Willem Daem (b. 1988) started studying film at Sint-Lukas before deciding to swap his dream of becoming a director for the life of a writer. After a residency at the Flemish-Dutch House deBuren, Daem published a number of stories in the Dutch literary review Das Magazin. In 2015 he published his debut collection of stories, Zelfs de vogels vallen (published by De Bezige Bij). Besides a writer, Daem is also the founder of the arts magazine Oogst, a ‘timeless exhibition’.
