Experience the two ends of the emotional spectrum: Bitter x Sweet through art and culture.

Crowed Sourced Public Exhibit
You are not alone. Be part of our crowdsourced public exhibition where you can share an object that represents a bitter story that stings or a sweet memento that will put a smile on one’s face.

Two-Route tour
Explore the painful heartbreaks of our history in the stories of our heroes or savor our sweet, personal, and romantic victories as a nation.

How to Write a Romance Novel (A Lecture and Live Reading)
They meet, they fall in love, their love is tested—will they prevail? Romance novels are entertaining, inspirational, empowering, and you can write them, too. Author and publisher Mina V. Esguerra will share the basics of writing a contemporary romance novel, and answer questions in an open forum. To help you internalize the ‘kilig‘, theater actors will be reading scenes from memorable romance novels by Filipino authors.

WORKSHOP | Romance Story Writing
February 18 and 25, 2017, both Saturdays
9am to 12nn

So you have a romance story, but do you have a novel that readers will love? This workshop’s two sessions will put your passion project to the test. Author and publisher Mina V. Esguerra will guide you through the writing and development of your story. You may also ask her about choosing among publishing options, finding readers, and participating in the vibrant community of romance readers and authors worldwide.

TALK | The History Game: Using Real Events to Write the Best Fiction in Any Genre
Friday, February 24, 2017
2pm to 5pm

How do you write authentic characters who are nothing like you? Through lots of research, of course. But beware—flat descriptions from encyclopedias won’t cut it because they reflect only the most common experience. The best characters are the outliers: the unusual, precocious, and maybe even dangerous heroes and heroines. Learn how to find inspiration from free sources online such as books, memoirs, documents, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, maps, photographs, clothing, artefacts, personal papers, and videos. Though this workshop’s emphasis will be on historical research, especially the 18th through early 20th centuries, it will include tips and tricks for all authors. Just like how the Hunger Games series used allusions from ancient Greece to Vietnam, true stories inspire the best fiction, no matter what genre.
Speaker: Jennifer Hallock, History Romance Author
Fee: Php 680
Discounted rate available for Ayala Museum Members and AGC Employees
