Hi! My name is Alex (they/them), and I’m a Queer poet from Singapore.
I’m most often found performing in monthly slams at Blu Jaz Cafè, or open mic events like Spoke and Bird and Destination Ink, and videos of some of my performances can be found on my YouTube Channel, link below!
I’ve had the honour of performing for TransIt II and III, as part of IndigNation 2017 and 2018, together with all the other amazing and extremely talented queer poets. It was amazing to be performing with them and I’d love to do it again, but that remains to be seen!
Beyond that, I’ve also participated in SingPoWriMo 2017 and 2018, completing 23 official days of the challenge in 2018. No book or awards to speak of yet, and I still have so much to learn about poetry and spoken word.
I love photography as well, but I can’t really call myself a photographer given that I have almost no technical skill in the art. I just like taking pictures of things that seem to make sense with my poems – which is to say, not that many pictures.
(I guess if I have to pin a label to it, I do mostly urban photography. But what are labels, really?)
I was studying Creative Writing for TV and New Media in Singapore Polytechnic, and now I’m in my internship phase right before I graduate. Which means I’m still depressed as heck, but with slightly more financial stability.
I hope you enjoy my photos and poetry!
