What is panitikan.com.ph?

The website is a project of the UP Institute of Creative Writing. Its primary aim is to disseminate Philippine literature online by providing a database of author’s profiles and their works. Its other features like the writers market and monthly calendar of activities seek to stimulate literary interest. Panitikan.com.ph respects the copyrights of individual authors; works have been published with their permission.
