From February 10 to 12, we will hold the Taboan Writers Festival at the Royal Mandaya Hotel. The festival will bring in writers from all over the Philippines. This is your chance to meet those whose work you have read and to discuss with them their craft.
The main component of the festival will be conference sessions. Throughout the three days, we will talk about our roots in culture and the directions that young writers are taking Philippine literature. Supporting this activity are book launchings, book fairs, outreach visits to schools in Davao, cultural performances, and awards for esteemed writers in Mindanao.
Taboan is free and open to the public (though if you wish to have lunch at the hotel for the three days of the conference, you have the option to pay the P1,500 deluxe guest fee.)
Please visit the Taboan web site for details of the conference. We would appreciate if you could take the time to register if you are attending. And please forward this invitation to your friends.
Thank you. Hope to see you at Taboan!
