* Sponsorships: The Guild is sending eight (8) employees from HDI and SPS to be certified as storytellers by the Alitaptap Storytellers Club. This will be on October 21-22 at the National Library, T. Kalaw Avenue, Manila. They will do their "finals" in front of children visiting the Museong Pambata, Roxas Boulevard, Manila.

They will do their launching act at the SPi Family Day on October 28 at the 5th Level, SPi Building.

* SPipol. Your lives. Our stories.: The Guild will be featuring stories of people in our journal starting September. We already started with Sunrise Gourmet's Christian Umali. Guess who's next in line? Klieg lights, please...

* TX2LA: No, no more of those kinds of poetry, but this one is guaranteed to be a hit! Designed to create a mass base of contributors among finger-happy texters in SPi, a nationwide contest will be launched in November for 3-liner poetry that reflects life, love, and living. The winning entries will be read during the Poetry Festival in February and published in our poetry journal, Caught in the Act! Entries will be received from Manila, Laguna, Cebu and Dumaguete offices.

* Project R.E.A.D.: This is a project designed to promote reading among SPi employees. This early, a lot of people have already borrowed our books despite the lack of a mobile bookcase. Soon, our mobile library will visit your SBU for a month and you can read our books to your heart's content - without having to pay anything! Watch out for that Red Box coming your way!

O, saan ka pa?! Dito ka na sa Writers Guild!

The wall clock featured in the photo is by Film director / Artist Bong Salaveria of Vintage Pop. His quaint store can be found at the Marikina Shoe Expo, Cubao, Q.C. We will feature it here soon when we are able.
