UST-CCWS Now Accepting Applicants for Writing Workshop

Just a plug which I got from my email:
The University of Santo Tomas Center for Creative Writing and Studies (UST-CCWS) is now accepting manuscripts for the 9th UST-CCWS National Writers Workshop to be held in Baguio City this summer. The workshop is open to writers who have not been awarded fellowships to any national writers workshop.

Entries should consist of six poems, or three short stories, or three creative non-fiction pieces in either English or Filipino. They must be submitted in five copies (one original) in short bond paper, together with a soft copy in MS Word format stored in a CD or a diskette. In lieu of the applicant’s name, a pen name should appear in the manuscript. In a separate legal envelope (marked with the applicant's pen name, the category and genre he/she has joined) should contain his/her resume with complete contact details, a 2x2 ID photo, and a certification duly signed by an institution/company senior that the manuscript is authentic. Entries can be mailed or hand delivered to UST-CCWS, 1st Floor, St. Raymund’s Bldg, University of Santo Tomas, Espana, Manila.

The panel of critics is composed of the UST-CCWS staff which include Dr. Ophelia Alcantara-Dimalanta (director); Dr. Cirilo Bautista (senior associate); Eros Atalia, Carlomar Arcangel Daoana and Manolito Sulit (junior associates for poetry). For this year, they will be joined by guest panelists who are themselves established writers.

Fifteen fellowships are available. Writers from the Dominican network of schools, colleges and universities are encouraged to apply. Deadline is on February 29. Interested parties may call 406-1611 loc. 8281 (Tuesday to Saturday), text 0915-3228404 or
