Justin YW Lau (@JustinYWLau) is a writer, musician and self-proclaimed “vagabond at peace”. Born in Singapore and grown in Japan as a Third Culture Kid (TCK), he is bilingual and feels most comfortable speaking Japlish, a hybrid of Japanese and English (not to be confused with Engrish). Holding a BA in English Literature from Durham University, UK (‘15) where he specialised in Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel series The Sandman (yes, comics), he has been published in various magazines (such as The Missing Slate, Bunbury, Inkapture, Nanoism, Denizen) and aspires to be a novelist writing Japan-related fiction. He is also the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Transect Magazine: Fiction Across Borders, an international literary magazine showcasing short stories and poetry written by multiculturals/cross-culturals/TCKs worldwide. This global nomad is currently studying for an MA in English Literary Studies in Durham.
