visual closeness does not prevent the viewer from imagining the expanse
of the outside world and feeling the anticipation for tomorrow’s journey

Sa tournament ng TALA Online sa
bayan ng Balanga, namatay ang lahat ng manlalaro maliban kay Janus.
Sunod-sunod pa ang naging kaso ng pagkamatay ng mga kabataan sa computer
shops sai ba’t ibang panig ng bansa. Kinontak si Janus ng nagpakilalang
Joey, isa rin umano sa mga nakaligtas sa paglalaro ng TALA na gaya
niya. Hindi inasahan ni Janus ang mga matutuklasan niya mula rito na
mag-uugnay sa kanya sa misteryo ng kinahuhumalingan niyang RPG—at sa
alamat ng Tiyanak mula sa Tábon!
And ohohoho you can read the first chapter here or below!
Edgar Calabia Samar will be at National Book Store SM North on May 10 at 3 p.m. Please join us for the book signing and book discussion!
The Philippine Boardon Books for Young People (PBBY) formally launches the KABANATA Young Adult
Writer’s Workshop with a call for fellowship applications. Slated to begin in
October 2014 in Quezon City, KABANATA aims to provide a venue and support
system to writers who share in PBBY’s commitment to the promotion of a culture of reading among Filipino youth by providing
this growing population with books that recognize their culture, aspirations,
and sense of maturity.
For a period of at
least six months, fellows accepted to KABANATA will meet monthly for learning
sessions with industry experts, and progress discussions with their co-fellows.
Upon novel completion, PBBY will help fellows with publication by inviting
publishers to bid on the finished works. With this, KABANATA hopes to produce
chapter books and young adult novels that will set the bar for similar
endeavors to aspire to, and be the growth spurt of what will hopefully become a
thriving, diverse, and quality Filipino literature inventory for kids and teens.
Applicants are asked
to submit, among other requirements, a novel-in-progress represented by three
chapters and a chapter outline. Novels-in-progress should be aimed towards
children within the age of 9 to 16. Those interested may visit pbby.org.ph or
bit.ly/kabanata to see the application guidelines, fellowship requirements, and
complete workshop details. For further inquiries, contact KABANATA via
email@example.com or (02) 352-6765 local 119.
