To the budding writer, we offer a space to learn and explore, for you to discover your voice and the best practices of your craft before you come face-to-face (or email-to-email) with an editor. Our workshops are highly experiential in nature and will take you from idea-gathering to story-writing… all the way to actually pitching your story. Our editor-founders are always on hand to answer questions before you make those costly mistakes.
Our past workshops have included multiple runs of the following:
– Jumpstart Your Freelance Writing Career
– Feature Writing 101
– Walk Write This Way: A writing tour with Carlos Celdran
– Eat, Write, Love (held in partnership with Adarna Food; Culture)
– Writing about Arts and Culture (held in partnership with Yuchengco Museum)
– How to Make Money from Writing
– Dreamboarding: A Creative Visualization Workshop
