Just received word from Joel Toledo, literary editor of the Philippines Free Press, that a piece I'd submitted some time back is going live on the www.freepress.com.ph website on 25 September. Will re-announce once it's up. :) Just sharing the joy.
Also, yesterday, Shane Carreon, who was my housemate at the 50th Silliman National Writers Workshop, attended the 2011 Nick Joaquin Philippines Graphic Literary Awards, and came home with an award. Her fiction piece, "Birds", received second prize. HUZZAH!!!
