The Writers Guild of SPi is proud and extremely honored to be host to the respected Alitaptap Storytellers Club this month of September. Founded in February 1999 at the Museo Pambata, it is a guild of volunteer storytellers whose mission is “to instill among children the love of reading and the appreciation of children’s literary art through storytelling”.

The workshop, a short course of what normally is a two-day exercise, will be done in an informal manner, with useful tips and 5-minute storytelling exercises designed to bring out the child in you – someone who loves stories and finds ways to creatively express these in the most animated way possible.

More than anything, the Writers Guild extends this invitation to all parents (saying “Good Night!” is never enough!) and big brothers and sisters whose siblings may benefit from your exciting stories than from watching senseless shows on television.

Help us bring back the ancient art of storytelling! Let us bring back creativity in thinking, artistry in style, and instill the craft of imagination in our young people.

Join us on September 9, 2006 from 9 AM to 5 PM here at SPi’s global headquarters. AM / PM snacks and lunch is on us. Please feel free to register via SMS. Type STORY_(name)_(SBU)_(email) to 0926.622.3359. See you there!

"If kids today do not read, there is no future for the local publishing industry."
- Manolo Silayan, PBBY Chairman and Alitaptap President, during the opening of the 27th Manila International Book Fair at the World Trade Center (August 30 - September 3)
