Yan Wai Yin (b. 1994, Hong Kong) graduated from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in 2016.

Yan’s works often depict a bystander perspective to pull away the persona from personal experience. By drifting between her own observation and the temporal, emotional distance between different literary texts, she juxtaposes sentences with her own narratives, thus thrusts to retrieve those quotidian fragments idling within spatial ruptures and daily objects. 

She lives and works in Hong Kong.
