10th iyas creative writing workshop fellows

After submitting the same (sort of) kind of works (like those from my 47th Duma) to this workshop in the past year and getting rejected through e-mail, the only sane thing to do is to get out of my niche and send something entirely beyond what I have been heavily influenced in college. I think I have done the right thing for risking a little bit. I made it—this time, for fiction naman! Here’s the official statement released by University of St. La Salle Bacolod's website:

Congratulations on getting accepted to IYAS. One of our young Davao writers will also be there, Paul "Argee" Gumanao. Hope you two get to be good friends.

Thanks, Sir Dom. Well, let's see about that on Monday workshop proper. I've done some googling and found some of his poems. They're good!
