The LitCritters is a reading and writing group based in Manila and Dumaguete. Every week, we read and discuss several pieces of short fiction from various genres from different writers with the goal of expanding our reading horizons, improving our ability to critique, and learning how to write from the good texts. In addition to speculative fiction, we read Philippine literature in English, as well as world literature.

In Dumaguete, we welcome new LitCritter Justine Megan Yu, a fellow from last summer's National Writers Workshop. Justine's a feminist essayist trying her hand with other genres. We've invited her to add more female perspective for the group. (With Marianne in Japan, Michelle's the only one left to balance off the boys.)
