In Adder Newsssss

Just got an email stating that two of my poems ("Jesus Walking on Water" and "Subterfuge") are coming out in the Spring Issue of Washington Square, the literary journal of New York University's graduate creative writing program. Allan Popa's poem, "Aubade" is also seeing print there. Wasak One!

Also, Khavn dela Cruz is screening his new digital short film, "Literature" based on my poem of the same title on March 24, 7pm in Center for Arts in Timog. I caught a glimpse of how "90%" of it looked last night in mag:net. Angkol Tom's Khavn says 90 percent pa lang 'yun because he's still tweaking it for the actual launch on the 24th. This along with some of his recent short films, including "I'm not Batman" which features Lourd and rest of Sago. Wasak Two!

Below's the announcement and some photos from the shoot of "Literature". Nood naman kayo, mga bayaw.
