50th UPNWW application period extended
() - December 9, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The University of the Philippines Likhaan: Institute of Creative Writing has announced the extension of the deadline for applications to the 50th UP National Writers Workshop (UPNWW) from Oct. 30 to Dec. 15, 2010. The workshop is slated for April 2011 in Baguio City. Likhaan Fellow Jun Cruz Reyes will serve as the director of the 2011 workshop.

The UPNWW was reformatted five years ago to address a dearth in the mentoring of writers in mid-career. Formerly a workshop that honed emerging talent mostly from the nation’s universities and colleges, the workshop at present focuses on writers who have already published, or are on the verge of publishing a book or those who have already won major literary awards. In effect, the new format caters to writers who are no longer beginners.

For more information on submission guidelines and application requirements for the 50th UPNWW, you may visit www.upd.edu.ph/~icw or “like” us in Facebook. Search: “Likhaan: University of the Philippines Institute of Creative Writing.”

For inquiries, call 9221830 and ask for Eva Cadiz.
