Announcing the call for contributions to the 1st edition of an Anthology of Essays
by Young Moro Writers.

This anthology intends to present the various expressions and experiences of young Moros in a society that grapples with tradition, religion, and change.

Writers must be 45 years old or below. They could be of pure Moro lineage or mixed parentage. Writings are limited to informal essays (no academic papers, please!). Experimental works are also welcome. There is no general theme for the anthology although writers are encouraged to concentrate on one specific topic. For example, one writer has submitted two essays on his struggles being gay in a conservative Maguindanaon society. Writers can submit up to five essays to maximize the chances for selection.

Deadline of the submission is March 15, 2005. For inquiries and submission, email [email protected]; text or call 0920-9049336.
