palanca 2006

We received the letters from the Carlos Palanca Foundation today.

Nikki's play "Life After Beth" won 3rd Prize in the One Act Play (English) category! I'm so proud of her. She sweated and worked hard on her play and her determination was rewarded. It's a lovely play with a ghost in it.

My story, "How Rosang Taba Won A Race", won 3rd Prize in the Short Story for Children (English) category. An "adult" version of this story (with footnotes and two languages) was published a couple of weeks ago in the Philippines Free Press, but I like this version in a different way. Writing for young readers was quite a challenge but also very enjoyable.

These two letters brought joy to what has been a very long week.

Mr. & Mrs. Alfar thank the Big Guy above; lahat ng ito ay galing sa kanya.
