The Baguio Writers Group (BWG), this year's Gawad Pedro Bucaneg awardee from the Unyon ng mga Manunulat ng Pilipinas, will hold "Journey to Selfhood: A Creative Journal Workshop" from Nov. 15 to17 at the ICM House of Prayer on Recto Road, Baguio City.

Workshop facilitators are poets-painters-diarists Merci Javier-Dulawan, Babeth Lolarga and Baboo Mondoñedo. 

The workshop, open to participants from Baguio and outside the summer capital, aims to teach non-journal keepers how to begin one and find the purposes for doing so; make the personal political and political personal; show how journal or diary can be an outlet for the creative soul; and how to sustain a new habit

It will also demonstrate how to use the new media like blogging or Facebook and up to what extent or limit does one reveal or disclose the self and how to use art as a consoling tool when words do not flow as quickly as one wants to.

Fee for Baguio locals is P3,500. For those coming from out of town, the fee is P5,000, including board and lodging. Slots are limited to 20. 

To reserve a slot, email Javier-Dulawan at or Lolarga at 

Senior citizen discounts will be honored, but IDs must be presented on registration day for BWG's record purposes.
