It must be tough to become part of this. How did you apply then?

Arvin Ello said...

Hi Janette. Yes, it's really not easy to get to any national writers workshop such as IYAS. I just sent in my entries and wait for the result after about a month. I just tried submitting an entry every year (hoping for luck to come) until my entry was chosen in 2005. In 2004, I was in the waiting list only.

Hi there! I'm glad to have come across your blog since I really need to know whether they accept submissions in English. I've been e-mailing Ms. Fuentes but she doesnt reply. Anyway, I really hope they do accept English works. I tried last time in 2008, under Filipino short story, I was in the waiting list.

anyway, thanks again. I;m gonna take ur word that they take English pieces. See ya

Hi Ewong. I also emailed Dr. Fuentes a long time ago but there was no reply. I think they also accept English coz they have panelists for English pieces. I think I have to make kulit to a faculty from USLS for the peace of everyone. I'll update this blog. Thanks for dropping by.
