BNS Creative Writing Center calls for submission to KRITIKA 2013 Workshop

The De La Salle University's Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center (BNSCWC) is inviting young critics to apply for fellowship to KRITIKA 2013 National Workshop on Art and Cultural Criticism. In collaboration with the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod (USLS), it will be held on April 21-27, 2013. BNSCWC Associate for Criticism Rolando Tolentino is workshop director.

The workshop will focus on critical writing in the following arts: architecture, literature, theatre, film, dance, music, 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) fellows will be chosen for the fellowships, which will include transportation stipend and free board and lodging at Balay Kalinungan, USLS-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Manuscript should be an unpublished critical essay.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The application should include a cover letter (with complete contact information), an unpublished critical paper, at least one sample published critical work, and a curriculum vitae with photo.

Deadline for application is January 10, 2013. Applicants selected for the fellowships will be notified by mail in February. For inquiries, please contact the Center at (632) 5244611 local 233, or email,
