A two-day session of the Booklatan sa Bayan program will be conducted at West Visayas State University in Iloilo on September 24 to 25, 2014.

To emphasize the theme “The book publishing supply chain and the academic perspective,” the National Book Development Board (NBDB) prepares several discussions to be facilitated by our invited speakers. Among the topics are Authorship and publishing in the university, Writing and publishing venues for young and aspiring writers, New technologies in book publishing, Highlighting literature and local books in the curriculum, Forming a book club and other ways to increase readership in the community, and Copyright 101. Workshops on book designing and storytelling will also be done during the event.

Participants of the Booklatan are students, professors, supervisors, librarians, publishers, and editors of different schools and universities in Iloilo. NBDB highly encourages more people to join and exchange ideas that would greatly help in upgrading the skills of budding writers and educators.

Prepare yourself for these exciting activities. See you there!
