Cebu City’s monthly poetry night will be celebrating its first anniversary this month. Presented to you by UP Cebu TINTA, The Nomads, BATHALAD Sugbo, Handuraw Pizza Gorordo, and SuWhat, this month’s #BasaBalak will be called “Kasumaran: Pisik sa mga Tinagsip.”
BATHALAD Sugbo started this monthly #BasaBalak years ago to gather fellow writers and read their works informally. As the writers matured, they passed on the task of organizing this monthly poetry reading to the young blood writers from TINTA a few months after their first poetry reading back in February 2015. Handuraw Events Cafe, with its advocacy in supporting local artists by giving them an avenue to showcase their talents for free, has been the venue of the poetry reading.
As part of its anniversary, established Cebuano writers from BATHALAD Sugbo headed by its current president Jeremiah Bondoc will be present to read their work. There will be fun and games for the audience and get a chance to win surprise items from SuWhat.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite poems and stories to share.
#BasaBalak will be held in Handuraw Events Cafe Gorordo in Lahug, Cebu City on February 27, Saturday at 7PM onwards.
Admission is FREE, as always. Join us, Creative Iskolar!
