This FILCOLS Huntahan will definitely be a different one. First, it’s gender-oriented and second, it will have a dash of international orientation because of the guest speakers.

Jenifer Neidhart de Ortiz, Jennie Ness and Dr. Mihaly Ficsor will be joining the
FILCOLS Huntahan para sa Manunulat na Kababaihan, an informal discussion on writing, publishing, intellectual property and copyright.

It will be held on 28 March 2011 from 1:00-4:00 pm at the Seminar Room, College of Social Work and Community Development, Magsaysay St., UP Diliman, Q.C.
