Announcing the Guest Editor for BNSSSv6!

BNSSSv6 editors

I am very happy to announce that Gwee Li Sui will be the guest editor for Volume Six of the biennial Best New Singaporean Short Stories anthology series! (And I remain the series editor.) We’re currently reading for the volume, and it’ll be published by Epigram Books in late 2023.

Gwee has long been a part of the Singaporean literary scene as a poet, graphic artist, lecturer and literary critic. Some of his many books include poetry collection This Floating World, nonfiction poetry guide FEAR NO POETRY! and language companion Spiaking Singlish. Gwee has also translated into Singlish works by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (The Leeter Tunku), Beatrix Potter (The Tale of Peter Labbit) and the Brothers Grimm (Grimms’ Fairy Tales in Singlish). He wrote and illustrated Singapore’s first English-language graphic novel Myth of the Stone back in 1993, which was re-released in 2013 by Epigram Books.

If you have a story that was originally published in 2021 or 2022, email me at jason[at]epigram[dot]sg by midnight SGT on 15 February 2023, so that we can consider it. We are only looking at already published short stories, released in these two years. Please do not email Gwee directly, or try to message either of us another way, as these will be deleted unread. We will finalise our decisions later on, but contact me sooner rather than later to ensure that your story gets proper consideration.
