Eva Wong Nava

Eva Wong Nava lives between two worlds literally and physically and is based in a small city-state not far from the equator. She reads copiously and writes voraciously always wishing there were more hours in the day to do more with the written word. She believes in connecting Asia to Europe and America and finds immense pleasure in telling her English daughters stories of Singapore where she spent a big part of her childhood.Eva holds a degree in English Literature and Language from the University of Hull where Philip Larkin was once the University Librarian (and the reason why she chose to go there!); a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from University College London where the Institute of Education resides, and a certificate in Art Writing from Sotheby’s Institute of Art which she undertook to better understand what the craft entails. She holds a MA in Art History and has taught children and adults how they can use writing for communication and play. She is the founder of CarpeArte Journal, an online space, which publishes works of flash fiction. Eva’s flash fiction have appeared in various places, and her writing on art have been published in international art journals. She is the author of a children's book which encourages young readers to be more compassionate to people on the autism spectrum. Website: evawongnava.com Book: Open: A Boy’s Wayang
