Dear Mr. Peña,
Congratulations! You have been selected as one of the fifteen fellows for the 11th IYAS Creative Writing Workshop to be held on April 25 - 30 at Balay Kalinungan, University of St. La Salle, Bacolod City.
The selection committee has awarded fellowships for emerging writers in English, Filipino, Bisaya and Hiligaynon in the genres of poetry, playwriting and short fiction among applicants nationwide.
IYAS fellows will be given a partial transportation subsidy of P 3,000 for those from Manila, P 1,500 from Cebu/Mindanao, and P 500 for those from Iloilo. Your board and lodging is free; however, we will not provide for your inland transportation. Upon arrival, please proceed to Balay Kalinungan where you will be staying for the duration of the workshop.
We will have a welcome dinner for the fellows and panelists on April 24, 6:30 PM at Dr. Coscolluela’s residence. There will be a van at Balay Kalinungan to bring you to the dinner venue. Departure will be at 6:00 PM.
The workshop proper will start at exactly 8:00 AM on April 25. It will consist of plenary sessions and small group interactions with the panelist/s in the afternoon. Fellows will be assigned to a group with a lead panelist according to the language and genre of works submitted.
