Words Expressed: Filipina Women Writers Workshop

Saturday, June 7, 2008
Noon-4:00 pm

Filipinos and Filipino Americans have a long rich tradition of written expression which is etched in our souls. We have brought these expressions to the United States as poems, novels, essays and political analysis. Yet where is our literature? Why are our writers unknown?

Let us honor our Pinay poets and writers, listen to their moving and challenging pieces, learn from them and celebrate as we pass on this wonderful tradition of …words expressed

I'm not certain, but I'll ask and perhaps I'll try and film some of it myself.

Thanks!
