2007 dumaguete writers workshop fellows

Hitting the last minute has always been my flair in my college years. And this happened too in this year’s Dumaguete Writer’s Workshop; submitting my entries for a possible slot in a fellowship for poetry. Unfortunately, all those bustling efforts didn’t bear fruit. I didn’t made it. Well anyway, I’ve heard that the great poet Marjorie Evasco tried three times the effort before she finally got into this prestigious workshop.

All I can do right now is smile in a corner and applaud to my fellow LitCritters—Michelle Eve de Guzman and Robert Jed Malayang—who made it. Currently they can be tagged as “fellows!”

Congratulations also to the other Sillimanians who passed the strenuous and critical study from the applications committee. Pong, Justin, and Primy, good luck!
