Call for Literary and Art Works from/about Northern Mindanao: Bulawan Literary Zine Issue 02: ‘Dissent/Defiance’

About the forthcoming issue

Dissent, defiance: in Binisaya, supak, pagbikil; in Filipino, pagtutol, pagsuway (respectively). According to dictionary definitions, “dissent” as a verb means to hold or express opinions at variance with those previously, commonly, or officially express; while “defiance” is open resistance, or bold disobedience. The term is apt in articulating the responses to the turbulent events that rocked our everyday lives as residents of Northern Mindanao and the rest of the country. The ongoing extra-judicial killings, allowing a dictator’s remains to rest on the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and on the global scale, the slow but certain effects of climate change in Earth on the long-term: all these and more paint a sad portrait of our world, which make imaginings of bleak and dystopian futures.
