The Ateneo Institute of Literary Arts and Practices (AILAP) and Kritika
Kultura (KK) have selected 15 fellows for the 15th Ateneo National Writers
Workshop (ANWW) to be held at the Ateneo de Manila University from May 29
to June 2, 2017.

ANWW is the flagship project of the Creative Writing Desk of AILAP.
Annually, 10 to 16 fellowships are given to young writers from around the
country who wish to undergo a week of intensive training in their
respective genres, namely fiction, poetry, and essay. This year ANWW has
also accepted fellows whose works pursue issues surrounding the formation
of local history and memory.

In collaboration with KK, the internationally recognized journal of
language, literary, and cultural studies based in the Department of
English, Ateneo de Manila University, ANWW has also accepted fellows
working on critical essays on Philippine literary and cultural studies,
particularly in relation to the region, nation, and the globe. The
partnership between AILAP and KK aims to foster dialogue and collaboration
between practitioners (both emerging and established) of creative and
critical writing.

In addition to the workshop sessions, the fellows will attend talks and
participate in discussions exploring concerns connected to Filipino
