Studio Salimbal will be represented at the Visprint Writers In Talks event this Saturday. Mervin Malonzo will be at the Writer's Lifestyle panel, then he'll join Paolo Chikiamco, and Budjette Tan (maybe) for the Komiks Talk panel, and Paolo sticks around for the Publishing 101 panel immediately after. (We may pop into other panels as well, because we have problems shutting up at times.)
Those attending will likely be available for signing books when not on their panels, and many of the books themselves will be discounted, so come on by!
Date: 21 March 2015, next Saturday
Time: 8AM-630PM; doors open 9AM, program begins 9:15AM
Venue: G/F AB Lecture Hall, St. Raymund's Building, University of Santo Tomas Campus
Full schedule of panels:
9:30AM-11:00AM: Humor Writing Panel
Humor is more than jokes and slapstick. Truly memorable humor makes us laugh--and think about what's so funny. Visprint writers and artists come together to discuss how to write and draw funny, where they get their ideas, and the secret to using media to tell good jokes.
11:00AM-12:00NN: Writer's Lifestyle
Want to see your favorite Visprint writers participate in a game show? We do.
1:00PM-1:30PM: Spoken Word with Karl R. De Mesa
Listen to journalist, critic, and writer Karl R. De Mesa perform and sing poetry.
1:30PM-3:00PM: Reader's Panel
Let's talk about YOU. Visprint writers take to the mic to ask you their burning questions: what do YOU want to read; what do YOU look for in stories; what do YOU want more of? Help us out. Let's talk.
3:00PM-4:30PM: Komik Talk
Listen in to Komikeros talk shop: their dream projects and the comics they want to make, stories in the pipeline, and their plans for 2015.
4:30PM-6:00PM: Publishing 101
One does not simply become an author. Seasoned writers and publishers reveal what they look for in manuscripts, how they pitch their stories, and what kind of readers they write for. We'll even tell you How Not to Get Published.
6:00PM-6:30PM: Manix Abrera Kikomachine 11 Book Launch
