happy 2008! good tidings to all.

some announcements to start the year. ma'am Marjorie Evasco's poem, "Origami" will be featured @ the Poet's Alcove in mag:net cafe katipunan. formal unveiling is on monday, january 7, 7-8pm before the 19th installment of the Happy Mondays Poetry Nights (details on readers in the coming post). pls come. Nityalilla Saulo will give a song rendition of Origami during the opening.

the fourth issue of sir marne's Poet's Picturebook poetry magazine is fresh. featured poet is Sir Jimmy Abad. drop by and check it out.

a bit of good news! Chiaroscuro, my first book of poems, is coming out this march. i just got word from the UST press this morning that they need the cover design, last-minute revisions, etc, by january 30. am doubly happy because my dear alma mater's (UP) press is also publishing my other collection by the end of the year. wasak! salamat kay gelo sa pag-abot at pag-asikaso. tagal ko rin 'tong hinintay.
