Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name’s Vida. I’m a 20-something Filipina writer, reader, dreamer. Favorite mode is fantasy and science fiction. You can find my own fiction, as well as some articles, here.
I’m an old hat at workshops. I’ve been to the 2014 Clarion Writers Workshop in San Diego, California; the 51st Silliman University National Writers Workshop (Fellow for Fiction); and the 20th Iligan National Writers Workshop (Fellow for Novel-in-Progress). In 2016, I was also a fellow at the first Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio Writers Workshop.
What else? Well, I studied BFA Creative Writing and minored in English Literature at Ateneo de Manila University. And if you haven’t guessed yet, I love to read.
Other things I like include drawing, fairy tales, anime, French animated films, trips to the zoo, cats and dogs, the color purple, randomly bursting into song no matter what I’m doing, and questioning everything.
Drop me a line down below or feel free to look around. And thank you again! 🙂
