Pictures, Creative Writing Workshop at Bago City College, Negros, Philippines

I received these pictures taken at the Creative Writing Workshop in Bago City College, Negros, Philippines.  Elaine Sweet, a US Peace Corps Volunteer, organized the workshop. She had asked me to give a talk via Skype.

The other members of the panel were: Nadine Sarreal, Attorney Pandan, Nancy Huls, Jennifer Ly, Mam, and Gina.

It was a three-day workshop, Oct. 7, 8, 9, 2013, which included a tour of Bago City, my Skype session, writing exercises, with critiquing by peers, then by a panel.  The students had the opportunity to carry their work through several drafts, and the final draft has been bound into a book, The Output.  I can't wait to get my copy.
