Saturday 8th July, Van Su Yun (Singapore) & Judith Huang + open-mike, at The Moon Cafe, on Zoom!

Perth Poetry Club has wonderful poets Van Su Yun (Singapore) & Judith Huang + open-mike this Saturday 8th July, 2pm-4pm at The Moon Café and on ZOOM.

Van Su Yun …This being her 3rd feature with Perth Poetry Club, Su Yun is facing difficulty finding space in this bio to fit her ego, but is determined to make room.

Having written sporadically since childhood, Su Yun began her foray into spoken poetry at Perth Poetry Club – hence a living tarnation was unwittingly unleashed upon the world of poetry. She has since unearthed an outstanding talent in literary pretentiousness – adopting an unnecessary (and now infamous) moniker “Syvan” among poetry peers in recent times; indulging in writing enough melodrama to be selected for Poetry On The Move 2020 by the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research in the Faculty of Arts and Design, University of Canberra; and spouting travesties under the guise of witty lyricism, which inexplicably earned her 1st runner-up in the Singapore WordForward Survivor Slam Nov 2022.

While inclined towards introspective writing, Su Yun greatly admires and tries to emulate light-heartedness and humour in poetry, to questionable success. She endeavours to experiment with a broad variety of subjects, structures, and diction – because it is the easiest way to pretend she has any sort of writing ability.

Judith Huang (錫影) is an Australian-based Singaporean author, poet, literary and science fiction translator, composer, musician, serial-arts-collective-founder, Web 1.0 entrepreneur and VR creator @

Her first novel, Sofia and the Utopia Machine, was shortlisted for the EBFP 2017 and Singapore Book Awards 2019. A three-time winner of the Foyle Young Poet of the Year Award, Judith graduated from Harvard University with an A.B. in English and American Literature and Language and taught creative and academic writing at the Harvard Writing Center and Yale-NUS College.

She has published original work in Prairie Schooner, Asia Literary Review, Creatrix, The South China Morning Post, The Straits Times, Lianhe Zaobao, QLRS and Cha as well as being a founding member of the Spittoon Collective and magazine in China, which currently has branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Xi’an, Dali, Tucson (AZ, USA) and Gothenburg (Sweden).
