There are thrilling literary events in Manila to look forward to in the coming weeks! It’s going to be a feast for lovers of reading and writing.
Readers and Writers Festival
August 26-28, 2016
I remember two years ago when I first attended this festival. I was able to attend a talk by Amy Tan who was their guest author. Last year, I attended interesting writing sessions.
This year, they invited writers Adam Johnson, Paula McLain, and Anna Todd. Also, there will be three days of engaging events from Memoir Writing to a Poetry Reading Session to writing about what you love and sharing it to the world (and a whole lot more!). Visit their website for the complete list of events.
