About the Non-writer behind this blog
Karlo Antonio Galay David is a fourth generation Kidapawanon.
His critical interests include the discourse of the Mindanao settler identity, the hybridization of the Filipino languages (with specific focus on Davao Filipino), and the development of local historiography and introspection, particularly of his hometowns of Kidapawan and Davao
An avid fan of local history, he is founding administrator of the Kidapawan of the Past Facebook page.
He holds a Masters in Creative Writing, has been published, and has won some literary awards, but he is still ambivalent about calling himself a writer.
Because he is writing in the Philippines, he has had to teach to make a living. But currently he is daring to write full time. He is for hire for any writing job (he may be contacted via email through Lefthandedsnake@yahoo.com, or through Facebook).
None of the written works uploaded on this blog may be reproduced without permission from him. For copies of his literary works not available here or elsewhere online, please send a request via email.
