Calling aspiring writers! UP Writers Club is holding an online public workshop

Nov 2, 2021 0 comments


In a lot of ways, our stories are a way of unpacking the grief, resentment, and disconnection we feel lately in relation to the world. So much of our plans and other day-to-day pleasures have been put to a halt if not to a slow crawl. It’s valid to feel like a huge chunk of our time has been taken from us, trips and other experiences that could have been but postponed at best. With all that’s happening, our stories are more than our outlet—they’re also refuge.

But writing, like any other craft, is a skill that needs to be honed and nourished Think you have a story you might want to improve on? Then you might consider submitting them for a workshop!


The UP Writers Club is currently accepting submissions for their second public workshop. Tackling the theme “Disconnections,” UP Diliman’s literary organization is looking for creative non-fiction and experimental non-fiction works that explores “the devastating isolation of having everything on the internet.”


For those interested to submit, kindly keep these guidelines in mind:


  • Minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 2000 words, with a page limit of 1-8 pages. Visual arts and other experimental elements should also be included in the page count. Anything exceeding these limits will not be considered.

  • Format: Garamond, 12, single-spaced.

  • The workshop accepts works both in English and Filipino

  • Send it as a PDF file to upwc.workshop@gmail.com with this subject line: [UPWC Public Workshop 2021] Surname, “Title of the Piece”. Please include your contact information in the body of your email.


Two entries will be chosen for their public workshop, which will be held on November 29, 2021, 1-4pm. 


But there’s more! There’s also a chance that your submitted entry would be featured in UPWC’s up-and-coming Sinuman magazine!


The UPWC is accepting entries until Nov. 8, at 11:59pm! For more information, you can visit their page! Submit now while you can!
