Call for Submissions to the 2013 Ateneo de Davao University Summer Writers Workshop

(The first workshop I’ve ever been to, the Ateneo de Davao Writers Workshop, is once again calling for submissions. It is the oldest writers workshop in Davao, and one of only few campus writers workshops in the Philippines. The 2013 workshop will be special for me: this year’s workshop director was my thesis adviser, Dr. Rhodora Ranalan, and my Silliman co-fellow and friend, Hazel Meghan Hamile, is associate director. The text below the poster image was taken from Meghan’s Facebook announcement. )


The Ateneo de Davao University, through the Humanities Division, has been running this writers workshop for more than a decade.

Fellowships to this year’s workshop will have 9 slots reserved for Ateneo de Davao students, 4 slots for teachers, and 2 slots for non-members of the Ateneo de Davao Community residing in Davao City.

We welcome anyone who loves the craft of writing or those who wish to be better at it to submit ANY of the following OR a COMBINATION of any two genres:

a. 3 – 5 poems
b. 3 short stories
c. 3 essays (narrative or literary criticism)
d. 1 full length play or 3 one-act plays

The works, which can be in Bisaya, Filipino, or English, are to be accompanied by a biodata.

  1. Only Davaoenos can join the workshop?

    • Lefthandedsnake says:

      Technically you can join if you’re from outside Davao, but note that the university will not be able to provide reimbursement for travel and accomodation expenses. Also, this is a beginners’ writers workshop, so it’s targetted for young writers who have not been workshopped before.
