Some announcements about the Davao Writers Workshop:
First of all, we're moving the venue from La Storta in Shrine Hills to Ponce Suites in Bajada. This should be a welcome development as Ponce Suites is more accessible (Shrine Hills residents excepted).
Workshop will proceed as scheduled, from May 4 to May 8. We want to invite observers to expand the workshop experience to more people. Panelists may ask observers for comments after the fellows have had their turn, but otherwise, the status is just that. Regardless, workshop virgins will find even observer status helpful and can highlight this in their future workshop applications. If you are interested to become an observer, please reply to this blog post as slots are limited.
We have opening ceremonies on May 4, 8:30am at Ateneo de Davao University AVR. Our guest panelist, Marjorie Evasco, will be giving a craft lecture entitled "Obligations of a Writer." This event is open to the public.
Finally, we have a culminating Poetry Reading/Performance on May 8, 2009 at Kublai Bar in Ponce Suites, 8 pm.
Please remember the dates, and do attend if you can.
