Poet and artist Marylyn Tan is one to watch. Her debut poetry collection Gaze Back, nominated for the Singapore Literature Prize 2020 and the US-based Lambda Literary Awards, is a romp. Drawn from her own experience of marginalisation, it’s an unsettling and thought-provoking look at feminism and queerness, steeped in local witchcraft, occultic symbols and the erotic. Other than that, you can find her work in poetry anthologies like A Luxury We Must Afford and Inheritance | The Anthology, or performing spoken word and conducting writing workshops.
