Last month, we had a rumpus at the West Egg as the Revisiting Required Literature (RRL) Book Club kicked off the season with The Great Gatsby, free flowing ideas and all. If you missed that session, here's the recap: The Great Gatsby Book Club Session
Like we announced that evening, Jay, Nick and Daisy make up just the first of four works we are diving into this term under the theme of 'Banned a.k.a. Challenged Books'. Our next session is set for September 19, 2014 (Friday) 7-9pm at the Forum at Fully Booked BGC. That evening we move from the upper East Coast, to Mr. Jones' estate with George Orwell's Animal Farm. We will open its pages to discover what absolute power can do to people animals.
Banned Books Week is on September 21-27 so RRL Book Club's second session serves as a great preface to that. If you haven't sent in your reservation, you may do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

People with strong writing skills get paid more. Now isn’t that a good reason to sign up for FEATURE WRITING 101?
That’s not according to us – although we certainly believe so – but according to writing website Grammarly who surveyed the work and personal profiles and saw that there is a “strong correlation” between writing skills and pay.
That’s great news for aspiring writers who dream of a career as a creative entrepreneur or those who work in the field of communications. It’s also another reason to sign up for Feature Writing 101, one of the bestselling workshops of Writer’s Block Philippines, “Feature Writing 101”, which is now on its second run for the year. The event will happen on October 11 (Saturday), 1pm-6pm in Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City.
Writer’s Block Philippines founders Ana P. Santos and Nikka Sarthou-Lainez, who have been doing workshops since 2010, and have been freelancing even longer than that, will facilitate the event. “It has always been our goal to help aspiring writers find their writing voice and uncover their writing style. There will be lectures on the different kinds of feature stories and we’ll be sharing tips on how to put oomph into your story," shared Santos, an independent journalist and foreign correspondent who is also the 2014 Persephone Miel fellow by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
“Aside from divulging our own writing techniques and rituals, we’ll have a writing exercise that will be followed by a critique portion where we will give constructive criticism about their written works,” disclosed Sarthou-Lainez who is also a Contributing Editor in Smile, the in-flight magazine of Cebu Pacific Air.
The workshop is especially ideal for aspiring freelance writers who want to write for a living, business communicators and even those who look at writing as a hobby but want to polish their writing skills.
No professional writing experience required; just an open mind and a story idea. Oh, and you have to be 18 and above to attend.
Registration is now open and there are only limited slots available! For inquiries and reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact 0917.397.9927.
