entry arrow12:06 AM | Literatura Out

After more than a year in the doldrums*, Literatura's finally back!

For this issue, it's a focus on this year's Palanca Award winners. You can find the award-winning pieces by Dean Francis Alfar, Exie Abola, Naya Valdellon, Joel Toledo, Nikki Alfar, Mookie Katigbak, Maryanne Moll, Pearlsha Abubakar, Pia Roxas, Aurelio Agcaoili, Rosmon Tuazon, Ed Maranan, Clarissa Estuar, Allan B. Lopez, with the other winning pieces still to be posted (as soon as they arrive in my mailbox).

Sir Krip Yuson also provided a great Introduction, complete with pictures of what seemed to be a very merry Palanca Night at the Manila Pen's Rigodon Ballroom.

The issue is still in the process of last-minute tweakings, so please don't mind the bugs and the kinks. Also, I hope nobody minds the fact that the past issues of Literatura are still not online. (They're online, though, in the old site, which I can't wait to demolish.) I'm still resurrecting them from the dead, but I had to finish this latest issue first in time for Palanca night. Have fun reading these worthy masters of contemporary Philippine literature, guys...
