Davao Writers Workshop 2011

Today was the first day of the Davao Writers Workshop 2011. Things went smoothly--so smoothly, in fact, that there's not much to write about except to say that: first, our special guest Januar Yap from Cebu gave a thought-provoking keynote on "Place", followed by fantastic readings of some of his pieces to illustrate his points; and two, we've assembled a good batch of fellows for this year.

But really, after three years of running workshops and at two workshops a year (one for the Davao Writers Workshop and the other for the Ateneo de Davao Writers Workshop), Jhoanna and I have gotten very good at this. The only real problem is making sure the money arrives on time.
