List by way of Ian's blog.

And if I may, the story of my own little contribution to this list. Krisette Valderia née Sia called me up two weeks ago on the last day of submission of applications. Was there any way to get her entries in on time?

Hmmm, a hairy problem, if there ever was one, especially since I was in Davao. So I made a few phone calls to friends Dumaguete, forwarded her poems via email, and had them printed out and hand-delivered to the CAP Building. Problem solved!

Congratulations all, and especially Krisette! Looking forward to seeing you and Herbs in the City of Gentle People.
