And the Winner Is...


We are pleased to announce that Becky Bravo has won our latest Romeo Forbes Children's Storywriting Competition for her story, "A Fish Tale." This is Ms. Bravo's second time to win the competition - she was our very first winner back in 2006.

 The other finalists were Cecilia de la Rosa ("Ang Isdang Ako, Ang Aking Panahon"), Rebecca Anonuevo ("Kapalaran ni Kai"), Sandi Ghannam ("Sisidlan") and Regina Mariano ("The Fountain that Changes").

 Congratulations Becky, and the rest of the finalists! And thank you to all the other writers who participated! :-)

I've been lurking in this website for almost two years now; I've been trying to work up the patient and courage needed to complete a reasonably enjoyable, educational and age-appropriate manuscript.Fortunately, I feel like this year will be my year. However, I've noticed that the competition usually starts in the earlier weeks of January. But for this year, no announcement has been made regarding the commencement of the competition. On that note, when will the next competition commence? I'm dying to know.

If all goes as planned, our next competition will be around May this year. :-)
