51st National Writers Workshop now open for applications

by Rachelle M. Nessia

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 2 (PIA) -- Silliman University (SU) in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental is now accepting applications for its 51st National Writers Workshop which will run from April 30 to May 18, 2012 at the SU Rose Lamb Sobrepeña Writers Village, this city.

The workshop is offering 15 fellowships to promising writers. Fellows will be provided housing, a modest stipend, and a subsidy to partially defray their transportation costs, a release from SU said.

Applicants must submit manuscripts in English on or before February 10, 2012.

Manuscripts should be submitted in hard copy on short-size bond paper, using Times New Roman or Calibri in 12 pt. font type.

Applicants for Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction fellowships should submit three to five entries while applicants for Poetry fellowships should submit seven to ten poems.

Applicants for Drama fellowship should submit at least a One-Act Play. For plays exceeding the one-act length, a scene accompanied by a synopsis of the entire work should be included.

Each fiction, non-fiction, or drama manuscript should not be more than 50 pages in double-spaced format. “We encourage applicants to stay below the 50 pages since a submission half that length is more than sufficient as a critical gauge,” the press release said.

Manuscripts should be submitted along with a letter of recommendation from a literature professor or an established writer, resume, a notarized certification that the works are original, and two 2x2 ID pictures.

Entries that fail to comply with said requirements will automatically be eliminated.

Applications must be sent to Dr. Evelyn F. Mascuñana , Chair, Department of English and Literature, Silliman University, 6200 Dumaguete City.

For inquiries, email or call (035) 422-6002 loc. 350. (RMN/PIA Negros Oriental with reports from Ian Rosales Casocot)
