Workshop: Playing with Words

at Local Edition Coffee & Tea, Perea Street, Makati

A creative writing workshop on poetry. We’ll play with rhythm and repetition in your writing. Using the pattern of poetic forms like the villanelle and the pantoum as building blocks, we’ll discover new ways to keep writing fun and fresh. No writing experience necessary! Workshop fee: P850 with materials and a free regular drink of your choice at the cafe.



OPENING: My latest art installation!

February 20, Saturday, 4-7:30 pm.

I’ll be taking over the walls of Local Edition! Keep your eye out for another mixed media installation and engage with some interactive elements. Opening launch will include acoustic performances by friends.

Installation will begin on February 12 and will be a public work in progress. So feel free to drop by the cafe then. Exhibit will run through April 2016.

The Flight of the Maya Bird by Nathania Aritao. 2009. The maya bird won’t stop flying for you, won’t stop her flight. Steady, strong. The maya bird won’t sing for you, won’t sing just for you. Listen closely. When the maya bird perches, she pauses. But you can never catch her. A getaway it is not. Sweet soaring adventure it proves to be. Maya bird, she sky dances, gliding melody in whispering wings. Maya bird, you fly, never forgetting where home is. Come home soon. Maya bird, you dance, never forget what home is. Maya, let’s take me home.
