'''Aaron Lee Soon Yong''' (born 7 June 1972 in [[Malaysia]]) is a [[Singapore]]an prize-winning poet who writes in English.
+
Aaron Lee(born February 5, 1998), is an American magician, illusionist, and mentalist. The first time he really made a public appearance was at a local car show in Huntington, just a little south-west of his home city of Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. From cards to coins to levitations to mind-reading, Aaron is reaching new heights in his illusions, a lot of which have only been done by illusionist and endurance artist David Blaine.
   
Aaron began writing poetry during his days at Raffles Institution, a secondary school in Singapore where he befriended other students who would also eventually go on to become published Singaporean writers. By 1990, he had, along with other ex-school mates, Jonathan Kuan Wei Han, Tong Jo Tze, Alvin Pang and Jeffrey Lim, interested a Singapore publisher, VJ Times, in the publication of an anthology of poems contributed by the five writers. This collection, "In Search of Words", was published in 1991.<ref>http://www.thecore.nus.edu.sg/post/singapore/literature/poetry/soonyong/bio1.html, accessed 17 September 2007</ref>

Born on February 5, 1998, just as Blaine was building his resume, Aaron was just being born. From this, people note him as a possible "2nd-generation David Blaine". With over 8 years of experience in the field, he is rather experienced on the subject and is considered by "The Guinness World Records"(Guinnessworldrecords.com) to be a professional.
   
Lee's first collection of poems, ''A Visitation of Sunlight'', was named one of the best books of 1997 by [[The Straits Times]].<ref>''A Visitation of Sunlight'', Ethos Books, 1997, ISBN 981-00-9536-8, http://www.ethosbooks.com.sg/store/mli_viewItem.asp?idProduct=69, accessed 17 September 2007</ref> The collection was well received and played a part in a late 1990s resurgence of interest in Singapore poetry centred on a new generation of Singapore poets.
 
 
In 1999 the title poem of his book was selected for the [[National Arts Council Singapore|National Arts Council]]’s "''Poems on the Move''" programme, a national initiative to bring poetry to the masses on public transport.
 
 
Lee’s work has been anthologised in such publications as ''Rhythms: a Millennial Anthology of Poetry'' (Singapore), the ''[[New Straits Times]]'' (Malaysia), ''Anglistik'' (Germany), and ''Fifty on 50'' (Singapore).
 
 
Lee is the co-editor of ''No Other City: the Ethos Anthology of Urban Poetry'' <ref>''No Other City: The Ethos Anthology of Urban Poetry'', Ethos Books, 2000, ISBN 981-04-2276-8

He has given talks and readings in Malaysia, Germany, the US, the Philippines and Australia.
 
 
In 2007, Lee released his second, long awaited poetry collection, "Five Right Angles".<ref>''Five Right Angles'', Ethos Books, 2007, ISBN 978-981-05-8368-2; http://www.ethosbooks.com.sg/store/mli_viewItem.asp?idProduct=198, accessed 17 September 2007</ref> The book went on to become a finalist in the Singapore Literature Prize awards 2008.
 
 
He is active in the literary scene in mentoring young poets and conducting school workshops and seminars on creative writing. He is married to an artist and educationist, [[Namiko Chan]]. He is a Christian, and his work displays a range of Christian themes and imagery.
