Learn the Secrets Behind Smaller and Smaller Circles, Tips on Writing Monologues + More at The Philippine Readers and Writers Festival 2017

Admission is free!

(SPOT.ph) The literati in Manila (and even outside the Metro) will once again convene in a three-day event that celebrates the power of words—the annual Philippine Readers and Writers Festival. It is set to happen on August 25 to 27, 2017 at Raffles Makati.



This year's Philippine Readers and Writers Festival features roundtable discussions on translation as an art, a survey on LGBT literature in the Philippines, how to write modern poetry and romance novels, and other interesting topics. Screenplays are also part of this year's edition as writers and actors of Ang Larawan, a movie musical adaptation of Nick Joaquin's play A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino, and Smaller and Smaller Circles, a film adaptation of F. H Batacan's crime novel, share what went on behind the big screen. There will also be book launches and signings by Filipino writers and artists Ricky Lee, Jack Wigley, Agay Llanera, Chucbkerry Pascual, Mark Ghosn, and Gloc 9 and foreign authors Mark Z. Danielswki (House of Leaves) and Pierce Brown (Red Rising).



Admission is free. Daily registration starts at 8:30 a.m. so it's best to come early as seats are on a first come, first served basis. Check out the schedule of events:
