Happy Mondays XIV

been up to my neck checking tons of papers and making grades. busy and harassed these past two weeks from end-of-sem duties. hay, salamat tapos na.

anyway, updates:

Sir Marne Kilates has a wonderful review of Caracoa 2006 in his blog. please check it out. also, a poem of mine came out in the Auto/Biography edition of the Asia and Pacific Writers Network website. Thanks to editor Ivy Alvarez.

and congratulations pala ulit kay Emong de Borja, whose collection Field Effect won for him P28,000, a sleek trophy, and the distinction of being the 3rd grand prize winner for Poetry in English in the bi-annual Maningning Miclat Poetry Awards. I co-judged the awarding this year with Ma'am Marjorie Evasco and Sir Neil Garcia. Sir Krip wrote about it in his column in the Philippine Star today.
