reading, writing, drinking coffee β˜• | +65 πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬

You can find my full publication and speaking history here. Here’s some work I’m particularly proud of:

  • My short story “The Funnies” won an Honourable Mention at the Golden Point Awards 2021, and is forthcoming in Best New Singaporean Short Stories Vol 6.
  • My essay “Jennifer” was published in Fourth Genre (Vol 22 No 1, Spring 2020). It is a paid journal, but here is an excerpt.
  • My short story “Sunshade, Starlight” won the Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition 2019. You can read it in the anthology Pleasure to Burn. This story was a lot of fun to write, and the folks at Literary Taxidermy were kind enough to invite me back as a judge in 2022, which was even more fun.
  • My poem “What My Net Dragged to the Surface” won First Prize at the Troubadour International Poetry Prize 2018.

I’m currently working on a novel project.

But before I am a writer, I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, and a human being. I hope I never stop being curious about the world. I love role-playing games, visual novels, liminal spaces, and most of all fantastic things.
