Ilang Bitbit sa Pagsagip sa Sarili ni Rommel Fábros Bonus 

Sa koleksiyong ito ng mga creative nonfiction—mulang personal hanggang impersonal—ay tinangkang ikuwento ang hindi na nga dapat kuwento, mga ordinaryong karanasang katulad ng pagkatinik sa lalamunan, karaniwang mga pagkawala tulad ng paglisan ng mga magbabarkada sa kinalakihang bakanteng lote, at paglalakbay sa sariling bayan. At habang nagbibitbit ay mas mapaglilimian ng awtor ang kabalintunaan ng pagbibitbit gayong wala naman talagang nabibitbit sa pagtatangkang ito ng pagsagip sa sarili.
Regular price: 275
Pre-order and launching price: 245

Alikwat ni Natalie Pardo Labang

Ang Alikwat ay binubuo ng mga tulang nailuwal sa pamamagitan ng paghalungkat sa loob at labas ng pagkatao ng makata—mga tulang matagal nang natutulog sa mga kuwaderno sa istante, mga tulang inaalikabok na sa taguan, naalikwat at pinagpagan.
Regular price: 230

Kung Saan Mang Dulo ni Xeus Dela Cruz Foja

Call for Emerging Writers from the Visayas: The 2019 Cebu Young Writers Studio

 

The Libulan Queer Collective, a writers bloc of queer poets, essayists, fictionists, and playwrights from the southern Philippines, in partnership with YOUTeacH Philippines-Central Visayas and young writers collective Hablon, is now accepting applications to the 2019 Cebu Young Writers Studio to be held on February 2019 in Cebu City.

The Cebu Young Writers Studio, an adaptation of the Cagayan de Oro Young Writers Studio, is an annual creative writing fellowship for 12 of the most promising emerging poets, fictionists, essayists, playwrights, and screenwriters born and/or based in the regions of Western Visayas, Central Visayas, and Eastern Visayas. Fellowships are available per genre — poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/essay, and drama. (Applicants may apply for more than one genre.)

To be eligible, an applicant must (1) be born and/or based in the Visayas and (2) not have attended any regional and national writers’ workshops organized by reputable creative writing centers and institutes.

Entries (original and unpublished works) in Binisaya and/or English (or those written in Hiligaynon, Waray, and other Visayan languages with translations to Binisaya and/or English) shall be composed of any of the following:

For a Poetry fellowship: a suite of 3 poems written for the page or for performance (not more than 60 lines each); or

For a Fiction fellowship: 2 short stories (2000 to 5000 words each) of any genre; or 1 novel chapter (3000 to 6000 words each) with a synopsis; or a suite of 3 works of flash fiction (500 to 1500 words each); or

For a Creative Nonfiction/Essay fellowship: 2 works of creative nonfiction (2000 to 5000 words each) such as nonfiction memoir, personal essays, travel writing, or other hybridized forms; or a suite of 3 micro-essays or works of flash nonfiction (500 to 1500 words each); or

For a Drama fellowship: 1 one-act play or 1 short screenplay.

The general theme for works to be submitted this year is on ‘sub/urbanscapes’—literary pieces that discuss sub/urban spaces and places in the Visayas—but is not confined only to this theme. Works that reflect the dynamics between the queer place and queer person may also qualify for the Libulan Queer Fellowship.

This creative writing fellowship will include manuscript critiquing, craft lectures, parallel writing exercises, and mentoring sessions to be facilitated by young writers from the Visayas — Wilfreda Cabusas, Jessrel E Gilbuena, Jae Mari Magdadaro, Richellet Chan, and Arian Tejano. Libulan queer anthology co-editor Alton Melvar Dapanas, multilingual playwright and poet Mai Santillan, and poet Thomas Leonard Shaw will serve as guest panelists. Fictionist and playwright R Joseph Dazo is the workshop director.

The workshop will also feature craft lectures by editors of the forthcoming Dan-ag Literary Journal of Central Visayas — poet and lyricist Cindy Velasquez on poetry, fictionist and screenwriter CD Borden on fiction, playwright and director Rudy Aviles on playwriting, and essayist Johanna Michelle Lim on creative nonfiction.

The Cebu Young Writers Studio aims to assert a creative writing culture of mentorship and critiquing in the Visayan regions and institutionalize an open training platform for beginners of the creative writing craft.

Accepted fellows will be provided with a certificate, lunch, and snacks. (There is no registration fee but fellows, if accepted, will shoulder their own transportation and accommodation expenses to and from the venue during the whole duration of the workshop.)

Electronic copies, in MS Word format, Garamond font 12, of the manuscript may be emailed to libulanqueercollective@gmail.com with the subject Genre_CYWS (example, CNF_CYWS). The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript. On the email’s body, kindly put your full name, address (within the Visayas), institutional affiliation (workplace and/or school), mobile number, and a short bio note (150-300 words in the third person).

Deadline for the submission of manuscripts is on 5 January 2019. All inquiries must be addressed to the workshop director through the indicated email address.

Senior high school/college teachers of Literature/Panitikan and Creative Writing/Malikhaing Pagsulat courses from the Visayas who wish to observe the sessions may send a letter of intent to the workshop director through the email.

The Libulan Queer Collective is the writers’ bloc behind the Libulan: Binisaya Anthology of Queer Literature and the online literary journal Payag Habagatan: New Writings from the South.

Copyright of the selected poem shall remain with the author. It is natural that being one’s best poem it may have published previously at more than one place. We would mention the acknowledgment of the first publisher only. If a poem is submitted to us it would be deemed that either the poet holds necessary copyright or he has taken due permission from its first publisher.

 Availability

The anthology will be listed on various online stores and like other books of Authorspress this collection too will be made available worldwide through authorized distributors and sub-distributors. The anthology will be published in both print and electronic format.

Circulation

We shall leave no stone unturned to reach the best contemporary poets all over the world. But if every poet, in the possession of this call for submissions, forwards to his fellow or friend poets, things will be pretty easier for us and it will be very helpful for the future health of poetry as well. Hence it is our humble request to forward this call to the emails at your disposal.

Looking forward to your submissions!

Kult 3 Panawagan para sa mga Kontribusyon: Cultural Studies at Criticism sa Panahon ni Duterte

Ang panahon ni Duterte sa Pilipinas ay panahon ng hangal na pagbabago. Maaaring tingnan ang #ChangeIsComing nito bilang orchestrated na foreshadowing of what is to come. Yun nga lang—ang “change” ay hindi something significant tulad ng mas maalwang buhay, mas masaganang ekonomiya, mas maunlad na Pilipinas kundi ang circus sa/ng pang-araw-araw. Kaagapay ang social media at akit ng digital rush bilang senyales ng pag-unlad (salamat sa Internet, nakakasabay na tayo sa globalisasyon… at 1mb per second), sumasagwan ang rehimeng Duterte sa pamamagitan ng pagbabagong walang-sustansya (magbabago ng isip tungkol sa time frame ng pagsugpo sa droga; mag-aappoint ng mga progresibo sa Gabinete para lamang harangan ng Commission on Appointments; mumurahin si Trump ngunit yayakapin ang mga Kanong sundalo).

Heto ang lumang bugtong sa kaso ni Alice sa wonderland kung saan kailangan niyang kumilos nang napakabilis “just to stay in place.” At ano ang ibig sabihin ni Godard nang sabihin niyang “change nothing so that everything will be different;” isang paglalaro sa “some things must change so that everything remains the same” na mas apparent sa lohika ng status quo (kahit palitan mo ang nasa gobyerno… may ‘bagong’ labas na smartphone at tayo’y gutom pa rin). Sa ganitong fast-paced na pagpapalitan ng mga usapin (palitan ang huling linya ng Lupang Magiliw, nag-resign si Mocha; pinalitan ni Gloria si Alvarez, ni Panelo si Roque), ano ang mga tungkulin at paano ang moda ng kritisismo? Harapin at daanin sa tit-for-tat ang bawat usapin (mula padrino system sa bigating literary awards, bawat ‘joke’ ni Duterte, red-tagging sa mga unibersidad, pambobomba sa mga Lumad) o magtakda ng #priorities with the danger of tagging other concerns as “non-issues”? May silbi pa ba sa kritisismo at araling pang-kultura ang pamimilosopo ni Mao tungkol sa primarya at sekundaryang kontradiksyon at sa maraming aspeto ng bawat isa? Paano maikakabit ang analisis ng mga partikularidad (PepeDederalismo video, landslides sa Itogon, Benguet) sa mga mas malawak na usapin (misogyny, patriarchy, mala-pyudal na ekonomiya)? At ang kritisismo in itself—ang mga anyo, lunsaran at audience nito—paano magninilay ngayong lumalakas ang factor ng pagiging viral para makahubog ng public opinion; lantarang sinisikil ang kritikal na potensyal ng mga paaralan—redbaiting sa mga mag-aaral, kaso ng ‘contempt’ sa mga propesor, at ang dati pa namang problema ng budget cuts at mababang kalidad ng edukasyon.

Mula rito, nag-iimbita ang Ibong Adorno-Institute for Social Research ng mga maikling papel na pino-problema ang pagsasagawa ng kritisismo at araling pang-kultura sa panahon ni Duterte. Ipadala ang mga abstrak (200-300 na salita) hanggang November 30, 2018 sa IbongAdorno@yahoo.com. Inaasahan naman na maipadala ang mga buong papel (1000-2000 na salita) hanggang January 18, 2019. Matapos ang proseso ng review, editing at curation, maisasama ang mga napiling papel sa ikatlong edisyon ng Kult, ang critical journal ng Ibong Adorno, na ilalabas sa unang bahagi ng 2019.

 

*Nasa anyo ng self-published na zine, ang Kult ay ang regular na critical journal ng Ibong Adorno-Institute of Social Research. Ang Ibong Adorno-ISR ay isang grupo ng mga kritikong naglalayong i-popularize ang kritikal na teorya sa pamamagitan ng paggamit dito sa pag-unawa ng mga pang-araw-araw na pangyayari at isyu. Maliban rito, primaryang lagusan ng maiikling komentaryo at analisis ng Ibong Adorno ang social media, bahagi ng layuning maabot ang mas maraming mambabasa at makapag-foster ng mas mayayabong na diskurso tungkol sa lipunan.
