18 Fellows to the 10th UST National Writers Workshop (May 4-9, 2009)

The office of the UST Writer-in-Residence has announced the names of the successful applicants to the 10th UST National Writers Workshop.

The successful applicants (10) for English Prose and Poetry are:
Gilda Ysobel G. Galang, Nicolo Paolo O. Asprer, Racine Anne R. Castro, Anderson C. Tuguinay Jr., Victoria Isabel S. Yap, Raymond T. Calbay, Oscar T. Serquina Jr., Mario L. Mendez Jr., Nimruz A. De Castro, and Roy Rene S. Cagalingan. T

The successful applicants (8) for Filipino Prose and Poetry are:
Jack Dison C. Pablo, Pauline Grace F. Ventura, Ronnie M. Halos, Shiela R. Castillo, Radney Ranario, Ruben Jeffrey A. Asuncion, Avie Felix, and Kevin Bryan E. Marin.

The 10th National Writers Workshop will be held from May 4 to 9, 2009 at the St. Raymund’s Building, University of Santo Tomas , España, Manila. The last two days of the workshop will be tentatively held in a resort in Clark, Pampanga.

The six-day workshop will focus on poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction both in English and Filipino. To conduct the workshop are Ophelia A. Dimalanta, Cirilo F. Bautista, Eros Atalia, Carlomar Daoana, Al Dimalanta, Michael M. Coroza, and Gerry Gracio. Guest panelists will also be invited during the workshop proper.

“The number of applicants to this year’s writers’ workshop was a lot more than we expected,” Dr. Ophelia A. Dimalanta, UST Writer-in-Residence, said. “Because of the overwhelming response to the 10th National Writers Workshop and the quality of the works submitted, we will be holding the 11th edition of the workshop sooner, which is sometime in October of this year, and we will be choosing from the pool of writers who submitted their application but were not lucky enough to be chosen for the summer edition,” she added.

The 18 successful fellows for the summer workshop are required to confirm their participation via e-mail to aldimalanta@gmail.com not later than April 8, 2009. Those who do not confirm their participation on or before this date will forfeit their slots.
