ICW GOES ONLINE
We continue to promote Philippine literature and literacy in spite of adversity. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UP Institute of Creative Writing shifts its projects, old and new, online. Browse through our online fora, discussions, performances, and more.
GANAP: Literatura at Musika sa Gitna ng Pandemya
GANAP is a series of online performances by artists coming from the local literary community. It seeks to create a space where literature enthusiasts can gather and enjoy literary functions in the safety of their homes. For performers, GANAP is an avenue where they can freely express their own experiences and thoughts with regard to the issues the country is facing in the midst of this global crisis.
PAN: Panayam sa Panitikan sa Panahon ng Pandemya
The PAN series of online lectures and discussions aims to help writers with the production of literature considering the immense pressure brought by the pandemic. These conversations are made to foster a digital community where they can safely exchange ideas and enrich their own craft.
Interdiscplinary Book Forum
The Interdisciplinary Book Forum is held once every semester and constitutes a vital component of the UP Likhaan’s Literature for Social Development. Through the forum, the organization seeks to provide an academic venue in which to realize the imperative for dialogue and intellectual engagement across the various disciplines. In keeping with public safety protocols, the forum has been moved to an online platform.
