Sim Yee Chiang
Sim's writing has primarily been in the field of Singapore gay literature: his short story "Extracts from Fairy Tale", which narrates the coming-of-age of a young gay athlete, appeared in the Singaporean LGBT-themed short story collection Onewinged (ISBN 978-981-04-4469-3). His literary influences include modernism, metafiction, and anti-realism, as well as the work of Vladimir Nabokov and Samuel Beckett.
Like Cyril Wong, Sim is also involved in opera, both as a performer and a writer. He has performed as the Vicar of Ploverleigh in The Sorcerer, and is currently writing a libretto for an opera inspired by the seductress Calypso in the Odyssey.
Sim is currently the editor-in-chief of the journal Glosses.
