"We knew that it would soon be over, and so we put it all into a poem, to tell the universe who we were, and why we were here, and what we said and did and thought and dreamed and yearned for. We wrapped our dreams in words and patterned the words so that they would live forever, unforgettable. Then we sent the poem as a pattern of flux, to wait in the heart of a star, beaming out its message in pulses and bursts and fuzzes across the electromagnetic spectrum, until the time when, on worlds a thousand sun systems distant, the pattern would be decoded and read, and it would become a poem once again.” -- Triolet in Neil Gaiman's Hugo award winning How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Rebecca - At the 2007 Pagdiriwang Words Expressed, 5 staged readings by local Filipino dramatists were performed. Next year, we will celebrate Filipina Women Writers. I have begun indentifying possible readers and have a few commitments. Would you be interested?
