FILCOLS Member UST Press Launches Books at the UP Writers Night

For around fifteen years, the LIKHAAN: UP Institute of Creative Writing has been hosting the Writers Night, an annual reunion and Christmas Party that has become a tradition among writers, artists and lovers of the written word. This year's Writers Night will be a toast to the country's newest literary productions, kicking off with the Madrigal-Gonzalez Best First Book Award and on to a variety of book launches and performances.

In celebration of their recent literary achievements, we are inviting all writers to bring a copy of their latest book to the event. These books will earn a place in the Gonzalo-Gonzalez Reading Room collection, which boasts of the best in contemporary Philippine literature. We also welcome literary books by non-Filipino authors for the UP Writers Club fund-raiser.

UP Writers Night 2011 is happening on December 9, Friday, from 5:00 PM onward. The 11th Madrigal-Gonzalez Best First Book Award will showcase this year's finalists in a forum on contemporary literature and an awarding ceremony. What follows are the launch of LIKHAAN Journal 5, the latest issue of the UP ICW's prestigious refereed journal and the first to be widely available online; the launch of UST books; and the presentation and launch of the project AKDANG BUHAY: The Writerly Life. The evening's festivities also include performances, open mic and a book bazaar.
