30th Faigao writers’ workshop set; submissions opened-A A +A
Sunday, December 29, 2013
THE Cornelio Faigao memorial annual writers’ workshop is committed to promoting a community of dedicated writers and creative expression in the literary arts.
For 2014, the workshop will have a back-to-back drama and performance playwright’s unit designed to develop a playwright’s voice through “coaching” in writing and acting.
The playwright and acting workshop will be run by New York-based playwright Linda Faigao-Hall.
Because the workshop will be handled by only one coach, it is set for no more than five playwrights only, and offered in three days from May 30 to June 1, 2014.
The objective is the completion of five fully realized dramatic performances of published monologues and original short plays.
Fee for the playwright and acting workshop is P2,000 inclusive of the materials.
It is open only to a Cebuano or a Bisaya, identified as someone born in Cebu or the Visayas whose work is primarily based in Cebu or the Visayas and has kept in touch with his local roots either through periodic contacts with his or her local school, community or family.
The development of theater arts outside of Manila is the primary mission of this unit.
One may email requirements directly to Linda Faigao-Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the writers’ workshop, it is now open for submissions from Dec. 15, 2013 to March 30, 2014.
Regular mail submissions must be postmarked March 30, 2014 to be eligible for screening.
Applicants may submit a suite of seven poems, a short story or a play in either English or in Cebuano. Writing samples will not be returned.
Interested applicants may submit/address their requirements to: Cornelio Faigao Memorial Annual Writers Workshop, Cebuano Studies Center (CSC), University of San Carlos, second floor Josef Baumgartner–LRC Building, Talamban campus, Cebu City 6000, or online to email@example.com
