The United Visprint All-Stars (or UVAS) in the person of me, Eros Atalia (Ligo na U, Lapit Na Me), Carlos Malvar (Crash), and Allan Navarra (Girl Trouble), will be in Bacoor, Cavite tomorrow to deliver a workshop/lecture to participants of the iWritePop! event.

Thanks to the CYWA and Mr Karl Orit for the opportunity. Personally, it’s the first time I’ll be in a workshop setting with me doing the facilitating and not as a participant.

I’ve just finished the PPT presentation and am excited to do this thing. Go UVAS! Grapes of Writhe! That’s how we roll.

Some words on the event itself from our friends at the Cavite Young Writers’ Association (CYWA)

Dear friends,

CAVITE YOUNG WRITERS ASSOCIATION INC., an organization that upholds the preservation and development of Caviteño literature and VISPRINT, INC. the publisher of popular best selling Filipino authors such as Bob Ong and Cavite’s very own Eros Atalia, invites you to “iWritePop!”, a seminar-workshop that will happen on October 29, 2011, Saturday 8am – 5pm, at Doña Dominga A. Andaman Hall, St. Dominic …College of Asia, Bacoor, Cavite. This workshop aims to discuss topics on Popular Writing and we are inviting students, writers and teachers who are interested to learn more about it.

This seminar-workshop is a one-day event and will be graced by Philippines’ known and popular writers. Our lineup of speakers is comprised by writers from Visprint Inc., who are Eros Atalia, author of the best selling Filipino novel and now a major motion piture, Ligo na u, Lapit na me; Alan Navarra, author of Girl Trouble; and Karl De Mesa, author of News of the Shaman.

There are only limited slots to be given as the venue could only accommodate a certain number of guests. In lieu of this, all of our registration will be done before the event day itself. The registration fee per person costs Php200, inclusive of a workshop kit and certificate. All fees should be transacted by depositing the fee in our China Bank checking account:

The deposit slip should be scanned and emailed, together with the participant’s name and contact numbers, at cavyoung@yahoo.com and karl.orit@gmail.com to ensure the confirmation of the slot and certificate. As soon as the transaction is made, it is non-refundable. Deadline of confirmation of slots is on October 26, 2011. Please keep the deposit slip until the event day itself, for it will serve as your ticket to the event. We could only accommodate walk in registrants if there are slots still available at the event day itself. We will also implement a first come, first served basis.

We hope that everyone would join us in this event. Thank you very much!
