Dec. 3-Freelance Writers Guild of the Philippines 1st Christmas Party

Freelance Writers Guild of the Philippines held its 1st Christmas Party and Grand Eyeball last Dec. 3, 2011 at the Chef’s Bistro, Tomas Morato cor. Scout Gandia St., Quezon City from 6:00 p.m. till 11:30 p.m. More than 30 writers from different fields gathered for this event. It kicked off with the introduction portion where everybody got the chance to share information about one’s self. It was followed by the welcome remarks of Charmaine Tang, the owner of Chef’s Bistro.

A poetry reading was held thereafter and Ime Morales, the founder of FWGP introduced the different committees of the organization. She invited everyone to join at least one committee to be able to lend a hand in coming up with activities for the members. Prizes were won through raffle and a book exchange, the FWGP’s version of exchange gift, was held.

Bebang Siy, FILCOLS Executive Officer for Membership and Documentation, served as the night’s emcee.

She ended the event with a reminder: through organizations, writers become a more powerful voice in the publishing industry. Another evidence of the saying There is strength in numbers.
