Sean Wai Keung's headshot

Sean Wai Keung writes poetry, performance and food-writing with a particular focus on migration, community and cooking. He holds degrees in poetry from Roehampton University, London, and the University of East Anglia. Sean has facilitated workshops on food-writing and food-poetry for the Scottish BAME Writers Network, Glasgow University and Renfrewshire Leisure, amongst others. His published work includes you are mistaken, which won the Rialto Open Pamphlet Competition 2016, and sikfan glaschu (Verve, 2021), which The Scotsman described as “joyful, earnest and often funny”.

Sean also occasionally works in horror poetry, having been part of the Haunted Voices anthology of Scottish Gothic Storytelling. He also devises performance work which often explores mixed-race identity and ESEA issues, including with the National Theatre of Scotland and Tramway.
