11th iyas creative writing workshop fellows

This may be too late an announcement, but this is a self-imposed initiative for having been part of the growing family in its 10th edition (yeah, just last year), which I think would be my last following my participation in Dumaguete and Iligan workshops back in 2008. I have learned a lot from this gathering. And I hope for the same thing to the new fellows listed below:

Honestly I think Iyas is a very good springboard/starter workshop for most beginning writers. I think you might disagree, but that's my two cents for now. Let's compare workshop thoughts once I see you in Duma.

I'm happy for these kids who got in. They'll be fattened up in more ways than one haha

Yeah, let's compare notes in Duma! You leaving on Sunday? Me excited.
