The fellows of the 51st Silliman Writers Workshop have been announced. I applied as a fellow for creative nonfiction.
Here are the pieces I submitted:
I did not get in. Hehe. Oh well towel, I say, c’est la vie. But I hope you enjoy reading, as much as I loved writing, those pieces. I will, of course, keep on writing, external validation or no—I write because I have to, to live, to stay sane (EMO!). In any case, I’ll definitely visit beautiful Dumaguete in the near future, as Mt. Kanlaon and Mt. Talinis are on my mountain-climbing bucket list. What I’m not sure about is whether I’ll apply to the Silliman workshop again. Let’s see. :)
