The Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center of De La Salle University is inviting young critics to apply for fellowship to KRITIKA 2012 National Workshop on Art and Cultural Criticism. In cooperation with the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod, this workshop will be held on April 22-28, 2012. Eminent critic and professor Dr. Rolando Tolentino is workshop director.

The workshop will focus on critical writing in the following arts: literature, theatre, film, dance, music, architecture, and the visual arts. It is envisioned to give young writers who want to commit themselves to art criticism a forum where they could discuss their work and concerns with established art critics in the country.

Ten (10) applicants will be chosen for the fellowships, which will include transportation stipend and free board and lodging at Balay Kalinungan of the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod.

Manuscript should be an unpublished critical essay. It should be on work by Filipino artist/s. Preferred manuscripts are those that study the work of our National Artists. A study may choose to examine more than one art form. Manuscripts in a regional language (e.g. Cebuano, Hiligaynon) are welcome and must be accompanied by an abstract in English or Filipino, or a translated version in English or Filipino.

Interested applicants should submit their application to: Shirley O. Lua, Director, Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center, De La Salle University, 2401 Taft Avenue, Manila. The application should include a cover letter (with complete contact information), an unpublished critical paper, at least one sample published critical work, and a curriculum vitae with photo.
