PEN to hold workshop on literature teaching in Cagayan de Oro

The Philippine Center of International Poets, Playwrights, Essayists, Novelists (PEN) will hold “For Love of the Word:  Workshops on Teaching Philippine Literature in High School and College” on Aug. 12, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m, at the University Conference Hall, Capitol University, Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental.


Award-winning writers and professors of literature Ricardo de Ungria and Timothy Montes will be the resource speakers/facilitators.


As a component of PEN International’s Beacon Center Program, the project is part of the series of teacher-training workshops organized by the Philippine Center across the country.


It seeks to enhance the skills of literature teachers in both secondary and tertiary levels, especially on the teaching of poetry, fiction, and drama by Filipino authors. Previous workshops were held in Manila, Iloilo, Cebu, Baguio, Naga and Bohol.


This workshop is co-hosted by Capitol University, and supported by PEN International in London and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.


There is no registration fee for the workshop.
