Basic Creative Writing for Adults

Ayala Museum presents


Basic Creative Writing for Adults

with Conchitina Cruz

January 10, 17, 24 and 31, 2017
6 to 8:30 PM

The goal of this course is to equip students with basic skills and techniques in creative writing. Participants will work on several writing exercises and go through the process of developing their drafts into finished pieces. As a venue for giving and receiving feedback on works-in-progress, the workshop aims to train writers to be critical readers of their work and the work of others, and to be able to use feedback productively in revising their work.

Discover how to handle writer’s block, and how to find your inspiration and sensitivity for writing. Learn how to develop a writing discipline that will take you from a first draft to a published piece. Let Filipina poet and two-time Palanca Award-winner Conchitina Cruz welcome you to the world of Basic Creative Writing. 


Conchitina Cruz won the Palanca Award for her poetry collections Second Skin (1996) and The Shortest Distance (2001). In 2006, her book Dark Hours won the National Book Award for Poetry. Her most recent book is elsewhere held and lingered, published by High Chair in 2008.

Conchitina Cruz teaches literature and creative writing at the University of the Philippines in Diliman. She earned her Ph.D. in English from State University of New York (SUNY) Albany. She is the author of several books of poetry, including Dark Hourselsewhere held and lingered, and There Is No Emergency.
