Likhaan Journal 8 extends deadline for submissions to May 7

The UP Institute of Creative Writing (ICW) has extended to May 7, the deadline for submissions for the eighth issue of Likhaan: The Journal of Contemporary Philippine Literature.

The editorial board, led by award-winning fiction writer and ICW associate Rosario Cruz-Lucero, granted the extension to allow more regional writers to submit their work.

The Philippines’ leading literary peer-reviewed journal, the Likhaan Journal is published annually with funding from the Office of the Chancellor of UP Diliman. It features the best of new and unpublished Philippine writing in English and Filipino. Submissions to the journal undergo a strict pre-screening and blind refereeing process by both the editors and a panel of referees composed of eminent writers and critics from within and outside UP.

Lucero will be the issue editor, while award-winning writer Heidi Eusebio Abad and Palanca Hall of Fame awardee Eugene Evasco will serve as associate editors in English and Filipino, respectively.

64th Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards now accepting entries, facilitates submission

Now on its 64th year, the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature (the Palanca Awards), the most prestigious and longest-running literary competition in the Philippines, is now accepting entries for its annual literary tilt.

This year, the Palanca Awards has enhanced­­­ its submission system to facilitate the submission of entries, particularly for aspiring and professional literary artists who wish to join the competition but are based in the provinces or overseas. Contestants will no longer be required to submit hard copies of entries, which saves on printing and courier service costs.

Online submission to the 64th Palanca Awards may be done through the official website, www.palancaawards.com.ph, where the contest documents may be downloaded. The accomplished forms and entries may then be uploaded and submitted through the website. To complete the submission process, hard copies of the notarized contest documents must be submitted to any of the following addresses: (1) Unit 603, 6th Floor Park Trade Centre Bldg., 1716 Investment Drive Madrigal Business Park, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City; or (2) Unit 3G, OPL Bldg., 100 C. Palanca St., Legaspi Village, Makati City. The contest rules are also posted on the Palanca Awards Facebook page at www.facebook.com/palancaawards.
