Negros summer writing workshop
fellowships open

De La Salle University-Manila and the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod (USLS) are jointly conducting a week-long creative writing workshop as part of the 11-year old Negros Summer Creative Arts Workshops directed by USLS artist-in-residence Peque Gallaga. The workshop will be from May 9 to 16.

The creative writing workshop fellowships will be granted to 10 applicants from the Visayas who write poetry, short fiction, and drama, either in English or Filipino. The workshop is a good venue to have one’s creative works read by a distinguished panel composed of Cirilo Bautista, Elsa Martinez Coscolluela, Peque Gallaga, Marjorie Evasco, Reggie Groyon, and Vicente Groyon III.

The fellowship includes transportation allowance and free board and lodging at the Balay Kalinungan.

Interested young literary artists may send their applications to the Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing and Research Center not later than February 16. Applicants must send any of the following: six to eight poems, two short stories, or one one-act play. The works should include a short resume, previously published works, a reference letter (preferably from a published writer), and a self-addressed stamped envelope.

A special feature of the workshop is the interaction of the writing fellows with fellows from the critical writing workshop, called Kritika 2002, which will also be held at USLS’s Balay Kalinungan on the same dates.

Aside from meeting the young critics of the country, the writing workshop fellows will also have the opportunity to interact with participants in the workshops for short film and video, drama and film directing, and production management. In addition, a fieldtrip to the historic and scenic city of Silay will introduce the fellows to Negrense lifestyle museums and other architectural sites.
