The Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) will hold the PASUC Culture and the Arts Festival on November 2016. Preparations are underway and part of it is the NATIONAL WORKSHOP FOR PASUC CULTURE AND THE ARTS FESTIVAL ADJUDICATION and COACHING at Batangas State University. I was invited to share a few things about judging the essay and I took the opportunity to talk about the beauty of the Creative Nonfiction.
*The Short and Long of It was borrowed from Gemino Abad’s collection of personal and critical essays “Imagination’s Way.” I divided my presentation into two parts: the short cut and the longer process of reading and analyzing essays. I’m grateful for yet another opportunity to meet college professors. The energy was so pleasant and I was welcomed with so much warmth. Thankful for the Cultural Center of the Philippines, PASUC and Batangas State University (one lovely campus!)
