tan jia hui
Idelle Yee is an appropriately meandering undergraduate at the National University of Singapore. Hobbies include dashing after public transport and sobbing over very cheesey and end-rhymey lines in omnibus romance flicks. When unavailable, in doubt, miscellaneously missing or otherwise causing inconvenience, see Couch of Existential Crisis. Joanne misses studying and writing, having finished public schooling in Singapore, a BA in English Literature at Warwick and a course in Victorian Literature at the University of Oxford. Her time in the UK has strengthened her conviction in poetry’s power to stir souls. She is back at school again, but as the teacher instead of the student. Free time has a very fleeting existence in her life, but she tries to maintain a decent social life with friends both real and fictional. Jia Hui is an alumna of Anglo-Chinese Junior College and a rising junior at Yale-NUS College. She’s a connoisseur of chocolate, a purveyor of puns, and a lover of literature (who may or may not also harbour an inordinate predilection for alliteration). A fan of both Dahl and Dickinson, she enjoys a medley of high and lowbrow literature on the side. Her previous works have appeared in The Straits Times, Prestige Magazine and poem anthologies amongst others.

Currently reading English Literature at the University of Exeter, Hannah admires all storytellers from Shakespeare to Scheherazade. As Online Comment Editor for Exeposé student newspaper and world music columnist for Pearshaped Magazine, her proofreading experience has landed publishing work placements where she was paid in books. One mission in life is to master headspins and make it as a pro b-girl, smoking opposition in battles worldwide. Having just completed her secondary school, Sneha is looking forward to taking up literature in junior college and to what else literature has to offer after presenting her first thesis at the Literature Seminar 2017 organised by MOE. An avid reader, who enjoys 100-year-old classics and queuing up for the latest JK Rowling books, she also likes writing as much as reading. She believes herself equally at ease whether helping specially abled school kids, or volunteering in international tournaments. Chloe is currently completing her fourth year at Oxford. Having finished a BA in English Language and Literature, she is now reading for the MSt Literature in English (1900-Present). When not picking at words she can be found boxing, and toddling after stray cats.
