The Healing PEN II: Workshops and Learning Resources

PEN Philippines will build on its previous civil society work with the programme ‘The Healing PEN II’, with the aim of addressing the current concerns around mother language education and literature in the country. PEN Philippines will organise a series of two-day workshops on teaching Philippine literature throughout 2016 and 2017, for teachers of secondary and further education in the Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao regions.

Alongside the workshops, the Centre will create the second and third volumes of The Philippine PEN Journal (print and online), to provide a platform for its writers and members to publish their works and to make these writings accessible to the wider population. The journals will also serve as resources for the teachers of Philippine literature. Furthermore, the Centre will re-design its website www.philippinepen.ph to provide a more accessible platform and to accommodate more data and materials.
