With the emergence of regional and national writing workshops, the guild, headed by Dean Jaime An Lim, noticed that there are genres that are not developed or are not yet open as a category for writers' workshop. This observation also came out with the numerous writing tilts that give focus or category for children's stories, including the annual Carlos Palanca Awards. With a rich literary tradition, the guild decided to conceptualize an annual writeshop that concentrates on a developing literature, in this case, the children's literature.

The fellowships are open nationwide. The entries may be in English, Filipino, Hiligaynon, Cebuano, and Ilocano. In the case of the works written in a regional language, a Filipino or English translation is required.

Applicants must submit the following:

(1) four copies plus digital file (12 points, Arial font, double-spaced, 8.5 x 11 inches) of two original unpublished manuscript (short story, poem, play or creative nonfiction) to be discussed during the Workshop - this manuscript should not have been submitted to any other Workshop;

(2) cover letter address to the writeshop director;

(3) a photocopy of the applicant's transcript of records, including a letter from the dean that the applicant is a bona fide student/faculty member of their institution (for students and teachers); and (4) one 2X2 recent colored photo.

The fellows will be divided into four groups that will undergo series of lectures and writing sessions based on the syllabus designed by their respective mentors. The one-week activity will primarily work on the objective of finishing a writing project that is the main target output. Plenary sessions are also scheduled for forums on the state of children's literature and the issues besetting it.

Deadline for submission is March 8, 2006.

The same is the postmark date for entries that will be sent through mail. Email submissions are accepted with the entry and necessary documents as attached files (wintonlouynion@yahoo.com).

For applications that will be successfully accepted, original documents are expected to be presented upon registration.

The committee will only shoulder the expenses during the writeshop. Travel fares to and from Manila (for provincial fellows) are to be shouldered by the applicant. For students and teachers who will successfully qualify, their respective schools are expected to sponsor their trip to and from Manila.
