Attended the closing ceremonies of the Davao Writers Workshop 2012 last night. Good time to catch up with everyone as I had been busy with work and other matters through the week, never did get to visit the sessions.
Plenty of pleasant surprises for the night: a declamation by a gifted nine-year-old girl, a young Muslim fliptopper, and spontaneous riffing. Talent, talent all throughout.
Pictures follow, all 37 of them. Chose the ones that featured panelists, fellows, and staff for their awarding, and a few that were passable. Fair warning: it's a long post.
