Dagmay web site

Just finished got the Dagmay website up to a point where it looks relatively polished. Go have a look.

Dagmay is the literary journal of the Davao Writers Guild. In its third and present incarnation, it comes out as a special one-page insert of the Sunday Sun.Star Davao. The web site is an archive of the works published since August 2007 (some months still missing while we're finishing up, but soon!) So far, there are 52 pieces already posted.

From DWG president Ric de Ungria's introduction note:

DAGMAY first saw the light in 2001 as a quarterly (and then annual) literary journal of the Davao Writers Guild before it became attached to SunStar Davao as a monthly literary supplement for the entire year of 2006. We envisioned it as a much needed space for the literary expressions of the Davao community, whether these be written in Cebuano, Filipino, Davaoeno, Kiniray-a, or English. It had a successful run last year, but had to cease publication at the end of the project cycle.


  1. Wow, Dom! Can't decide where to begin reading. And Tita's poetry is there too! :)

  2. Glad you like it, Gilbert! Now if I could only get the rest of the guys to cooperate and fill in the gaps.

    By the way, three of my poems (posted earlier here) got published last weekend. Funny story about that: the scheduled article was too long to fit so they needed a filler ;-)
