20 November 2017: "The Missing Sock" has earned me my first fiction prize in The Great Eighty Flash Fiction Competition!

5 November 2017: My haiga, "not alone" has earned an Honourable Mention in The Second Annual Jane Reichhold Memorial Haiga Contest! This is the first time my paintings have received a commendation.

"This lovely expressive watercolour immediately catches the eye with bold colours and a strong link to the senryu. Which becomes a very powerful statement, encapsulating something we may have considered in our lives. Our deep connection to all the universe shines forth in this haiga." ~Ron C. Moss, judge, traditional haiga category

Deeply grateful thanks to judge Ron C. Moss, for this honour, and to publishers, Michael Rehling and Steve Hodge for sponsoring this contest and publishing my work in their wonderful journals, Failed Haiku and Prune Juice.


25 September 2017: Gabino Iglesias reviews A Collection of Nightmares at HorrorTalk:

"A Collection of Nightmares is poignant and disturbing, beautifully written and wildly ranging in subject matter and execution, horrific and wonderfully atmospheric. If a large chunk of contemporary poetry pushes me back into the comforting arms of novels, this collection violently pushed me to seek out more of Sng's work, and that's one hell of an achievement."

24 September 2017: My haiku "first day home" received an Honourable Mention at the 2017 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival International Haiku Invitational.
