Yvonne Singh is a journalist, writer and editor. She has spent two decades working in national newspapers and magazines; eight of those as the Guardian's Assistant Letters Editor, wading through the paper's daily correspondence in the quest for anything publishable, as well as editing the Opinion pages (it should come as no surprise that it was the letters the paper chose not to print that were the most interesting).
Her work has appeared in the Guardian, Observer, Mirror, Evening Standard, on the BBC World website, Marie Claire and The Big Issue.
One of her essays, More than just a dreamland... Why the British Seaside Means So Much to the Working Class is in the anthology Know Your Place, which is published by Dead Ink. The essay was also published in the Guardian's weekend magazine.
She holds an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University, and now works as a copy editor for the award-winning website Middle East Eye. She is in the process of editing her first novel, a dark comedy about a grief-stricken young man who embarks on a bizarre, modern-day penance.
She lives in Kent with her partner and two sons, not far from the seaside.
