Food Magazine associated editor Ginny Mata will give a talk on food and food writing titled “Tasting Words” on February 11, Thursday at 5:30 PM at KRI Restaurant along Silliman Avenue. This is part of an ongoing lecture series sponsored by the Edilberto and Edith Tiempo Creative Writing Center of Silliman University.
Ms. Mata is also the founding baker of La Gordita, and has written extensively about food since graduating from the University of the Philippines-Diliman, where she once taught English and Creative Writing and had specialized in teaching food writing as a form of non-fiction. She has written for Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire, and Sunday Inquirer Magazine. Mata has also worked on several books on food, namely A is for Adobo (Tahanan Publishing) and Bukidnon: The Filipino Frontier. She gives regular workshops on food writing for the Ayala Museum.
The event is co-sponsored by KRI. For more information, please contact Prof. Ian Rosales Casocot at 422-6002 loc. 350, or write email@example.com. (EETCWC)
Today, everyone has become a writer. With the world market becoming more open to cheap labor from countries like the Philippines, more people have started to write for money. This leads to short-term income opportunities for more writers, but in the long run, it could bring about serious economic problems for Filipinos who write for a living.
Many so-called writers are going into freelance writing without any idea about fair practices and ethics. Some don’t even have the required skills and minimum expertise necessary to become an effective commercial writer. The Freelance Writers’ Guild of the Philippines (FWGP) has taken upon itself the role of helping educate freelance writers about their rights and responsibilities. The Guild is promoting awareness through social media and by holding talks and lectures, like the one happening on July 4.
FWGP founder Ime Morales is going to deliver a 3-hour talk to feature basic freelance writing tips and secrets, including a short segment with editor Rheea Hermoso-Prudente who will speak about taxation for freelancers. And to underline the fact that many freelance writers these days sometimes cannot make headway in their careers because of restrictive rates, Ime is opening the event to all writers on a pay-what-you-can basis. Please refer to the event posters for more details.

Kitakits at makisakay na sa isang kakaibang biyahe!
On March 3, 2014, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued RR 4-2014 or the “Guidelines and Policies for the Monitoring of Service Fees of Professionals.” In it self-employed professionals are now being asked to issue official receipts and to register their books and receipts annually, among other requirements. This new regulation has been met with confusion among members of the self-employed sector, including freelance writers.
To help self-employed writers understand the provisions in the new regulation, the Freelance Writers’ Guild of the Philippines (FWGP) together with the National Book Development Board (NBDB) are hosting a roundtable discussion between the writers and representatives from the BIR. Tax lawyers and accountants are also expected to be on hand to answer questions from the writers.
All professional writers are invited to attend TAXTalks on May 2, 2014 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The event will be held at the NBDB office at Unit 2401 Prestige Tower, F. Ortigas Jr. Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig. FWGP encourages writers to speak out and ask their questions since this new regulation is going to change the way writers earn their living.
