I’m Shawn Syms. Greetings!
My writing about sexuality, politics and culture has appeared in more than fifty publications including The Globe and Mail. My short-fiction debut, Nothing Looks Familiar, was a National Post Best of 2015 Book, and also banned by the Michigan Department of Corrections. Friend. Follow. Text., a literary-fiction anthology about social media that I edited, won a Silver award for Best Anthology from Foreword Reviews.
Peruse this humble microsite to learn about some of my projects, past and present, as an author, editor, critic and advocacy journalist.
