51st silliman university national writers workshop fellows

Finally, after five long years, there’s a Sillimanian in this summer’s Silliman University National Writers Workshop. Five years. I remember finding myself wide-eyed at being surrounded by amazing people (in all shapes and sizes) in that workshop last 2008, my first, and comforted at the thought that writing was something I’d really love to do. Even though I personally don’t know my next-in-line, I still find it a great relief. Also, congratulations to Debbie and the rest of the fellows!

: No, it's usually 15. But the number changes every now and then.

aww, none of my friends got in. O_O (not that I have many friends who applied.)

: I expected to see other familiar names, too, but sadly they didn't get in. Sayang.

But there's always next time. The second or third try would (hopefully) be sweeter.
