UBOD Literary Works Set for Release

UBOD 2009, a collection of 14 literary works by up and coming writers from the National Capital Region, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao is set to be unveiled on August 12 at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Initiated by the National Committee on Literary Arts (NCLA) of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in cooperation with the Ateneo Institute of Literary Arts and Practice (AILAP), UBOD 2009 covers a wide range of literary genres such as poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction and play in any Philippine language. It will be released in chapbook formats.

UBOD, now on its second year, is described by Gemino Abad, the editor of the first UBOD series as “the interior of light or consciousness, the living pith, the indestructible esse in ceaseless transmutation. Authors series all speak to our deepest consciousness of ourselves.”

The writers who comprise this year’s UBOD series include Sherma Benosa and Aida Tiama for short story and poetry in Iluko, respectively, Christoffer Mitch Cerda and Mar Anthony Simon dela Cruz for Short Story in Tagalog, Marlon Hacla and Francisco Arias Montesena for Tagalog poetry, Jerome Hipolito and Adrian V. Remodo for Bikolano Poetry, Jay Gallera Malaga for Poetry in Hiligaynon and JV Perez for Short Story in Hiligaynon, Leonilo Lopido, Phil Harold Mercurio and Janis Claire B. Salvacion for Waray poetry and Noel Tuazon for Poetry in Binisaya-Sugbuanon.
