Here is a list with my published stories on Medium.
Hi! I’m Øivind, a father, a husband, a passionate photographer, an indefatigable hiker, a music lover.
I’m a former language teacher and an adult education manager, now a full-time writer, based in Bergen, Norway.
I write articles and essays on personal development, love and relationship, writing, nature, hiking, philosophical questions, mindfulness, the world, our future.
I also write novels, poetry, short fiction and experimental texts.
I would love to see you on my email list — click here!
I love listening to the voices of others and those coming from inside myself, becoming ideas and trying to make something meaningful out of it through verbal sounds, words, and sentences. Writing has become my passion number one now that I am no longer in a full-time job and can concentrate on my favorite activities.
I have published five books (paper format) in Norwegian, 4 novels and a poetry book.
At present I write more in English than in Norwegian, sometimes I also write in French and German. I publish some of my writings in my own publication Insight (Norwegian: Innsikt). Other pieces I publish with other magazines on Medium, such as The Startup, The Ascent, Writers Guild, The Writing Cooperative, Live Your Life on Purpose, P.S. I Love You, and others.
If you are interested in publishing your writings with Insight, please just let me know by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
