News: 15 Fellows to the 15th Ateneo National Writers Workshop Named
The Ateneo Institute of Literary Arts and Practices (AILAP) and Kritika Kultura (KK) have selected 15 fellows for the 15th Ateneo National Writers Workshop (ANWW) to be held at the Ateneo de Manila University from May 29 to June 2, 2017.
ANWW is the flagship project of the Creative Writing Desk of AILAP. Annually, 10 to 16 fellowships are given to young writers from around the country who wish to undergo a week of intensive training in their respective genres, namely fiction, poetry, and essay. This year ANWW accepted a number of fellows whose works pursue issues surrounding the formation of local history and memory.
In collaboration with KK—the internationally recognized journal of language, literary, and cultural studies based in the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila University—ANWW has also accepted fellows working on critical essays on local history and memory, particularly in relation to the region, nation, and the globe. The partnership between AILAP and KK aims to foster dialogue and collaboration between practitioners (both emerging and established) of creative and critical writing.
In addition to the workshop sessions, the fellows will attend talks and participate in discussions exploring concerns connected to Filipino communities.
