Kapampangan literary journal to be launched in writers' confab

by Joelyn G. Baluyut

CLARK FREEPORT ZONE, Pampanga, Jan. 24 (PIA) -- The second volume of the Kapampangan literary journal will be launched in a confab on Feb. 9 to 11 here.

According to National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Chairman Felipe de Leon Jr., the literary journal will be launched coinciding with the opening of the 4th Tabaon which will be held in this Freeport.

“Tuglung,” which to means “to connect” is a compilation of the creations of Kapampangan poets - old, new, traditional and modern.

The reading public will be treated, not so much with the resurrection of Kapampangan writing but its revival and revitalization.

Tuglung wants to prove not the immortality of literature, particularly Kapampangan literature, but its capacity to re-emerge and develop, as part of the resolve to rekindle interest in this literature using the Kapampangan language.

The first volume of Tuglung was published by the University of the Philippines Extension Program Pampanga (UPEPP) Publication.

According to UPEPP, “in Tuglung, we are about to witness writers coming out of their hibernation, dusting up their manuscripts, and new ones encouraged and emboldened to test their wings, and to bone their literary sensibilities.”

The fourth Taboan, which is the Philippine Writers Festival, will merge the country’s poets, playwrights, essayists, and fictionists to share their expertise.

It will feature panel discussions, lectures, literary readings, performances, and a book fair. (WLB/JGB- PIA 3)
