Ian Goh graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. He then completed his Postgraduate Diploma in Education at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University.

He believes in the power of literature to inspire change in the world. During his six years in CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School, he was an advocate for the study of literature, film and philosophy of knowledge in the classroom. As such, his pedagogy infuses elements of drama, visual arts and gamification to engage students in their close analysis of literary texts.

His short fiction has been published in Meat for Tea: The Valley Review and recently awarded the Highly Commended Prize in the Michael Terence Publishing Summer Short Story Competition 2019. His short films have been featured at various festivals around the world and his short screenplays have been placed in local and overseas competitions. He has also served as a Play Reviewer for the Short & Sweet playwriting festival.

He is a recent graduate of the Game Writing Academy at the University of British Columbia and has attained Certificates in Game Design and Writing from the California Institute of the Arts and Vanderbilt University.

Currently pursuing a Masters (MA) in Creative Writing at LASALLE College of the Arts, Goldsmiths London, Ian is working on his first collection of speculative poetry and researching interweaving narratives in game design.
