Writing Boot Camp with Jessica Zafra


Ayala Museum presents

Writing Boot Camp

with Jessica Zafra

3, 10, 17 September, 2015 | 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Ayala Museum Second Floor Function Room

A workshop with no homework! Every session, participants will undergo a series of exercises designed to hone their writing skills and strangle the doubts that stop them from writing.

It will be facilitated by Jessica Zafra, who thinks “writer’s block” is a lame excuse.


Jessica Zafra is a writer based in Manila. She has written two collections of short stories, The Stories So Far and Manananggal Terrorizes Manila, as well as a dozen collections of essays on film, literature, travel, rock music, popular culture and politics. Many of these pieces appeared previously in column Twisted in the newspaper Today (1994-2004).

Jessica’s essays have been published in the New Yorker, Newsweek, the HK Standard, and The National (Abu Dhabi). She was editor-in-chief of Flip: The Official Guide to World Domination, and the annual literary journal Manila Envelope. At present she is a columnist at and at BusinessWorld.

Outside of publishing, Jessica has hosted talk shows on the FM stations NU-107 and K-Lite and the TV show Points of View, and managed a band. She is an executive producer on the film Norte by Lav Diaz and screenwriter of Esoterika: Manila by Elwood Perez. Jessica is not on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. However, she blogs everyday and gives talks/workshops at the Ayala Museum.
