Bukambibig on the Air
I was on radio last Wednesday as part of the Davao Writers Guild's Bukambibig. I was with DWG President and NCCA Commissioner Ric de Ungria; our host was Nitz Escarpe of DXRP Radyo ng Bayan. Owing to time constraints, I was only able to read two poems (but each one in both English and Bisaya, so it should probably count as four), but I thought it was a good program overall.
Bukambibig is DWG's public poetry performance series. It's been going on for a while, but this year saw some new innovations such as the radio broadcast and the dance interpretation.
Nitz was a very lively host, so there was never a dull moment.
I'm not quite sure of the feedback from the program, but I hope it got some more people who don't otherwise think about poetry consider it.
