"TRAVEL THE WRITE WAY" A Travel Writing Workshop
Manila, Philippines – Traveling enriches one’s mind and soul. When we set foot on new places and experience new things, we make our lives more meaningful.
Those with the spirit of wanderlust and those who want to immortalize their travel experiences on paper may either create a journal, or better yet, turn those vacations into travel articles. Join the half-day workshop of Writer’s Block Philippines, “Travel the Write Way” happening on May 30, 1:00 to 6:00 PM in Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City.
Aspiring writers, freelancers, and bloggers will go through an introduction to travel writing, learn the anatomy of a travel story, and discover tips and techniques of this style of feature writing.
The Co-Founders of Writer’s Block Philippines, Ana P. Santos and Nikka Sarthou-Lainez, will share their secrets of the trade and how they were able to write travel-related features for various print and online publications. While guest speaker, Erica Paredes, a curious adventurer who has over a decade of experience as editor and writer, will reveal her own tips as well. She has been writing about travel and food for the past five years, and continues to travel the globe and write about it for a major newspaper and her personal blog.
Registration is now open and there are only limited slots available! For inquiries and reservations, email email@example.com or contact 0917.397.9927. Visit www.writersblockphilippines.com for more details.
This event is made possible by Fully Booked, 2nd Avenue, BusinessWorld, Freelancer.com, WheninManila.com, and Dong-A.

In 2009, Flow:SurfYogaSamba started out with weekend retreats guaranteed to spark one’s spirit and leave one’s body and mind relaxed and revitalized!
Typically a weekend consisted of learning Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga with Monica Manzano, surfing the waves at the best surf spots in the country, dancing to the samba beats of Imperatriz Filipinense, as well as nourishing one’s body with delicious gourmet meals and raw food snacks.
It’s all about energizing the mind, body and soul. And this year Flow will happen in the city!
When: May 16, 2015 (Saturday), 10AM-8PM

It's Free Comic Book Day TOMORROW!!!
We in the Fully Booked team are so stoked about having all of you over at our participating stores for #FCBD2015! Before anything, we want to be clear that, 1) The full range of FCBD2015 titles will be available at our flagship store along Bonifacio High Street, and 2) selected titles will be available at other participating Fully Booked branches.
We also highly encourage showing up early, as our partner in this event, Comic Odyssey, will be giving away cool prizes to early birds!
Bookworms unite! Drop by the School of Fun Things this May as we discuss the incredible connection between humans and their books with the help of Leon Peckson. (Yes, that guy who couldn't stop talking about Shakespeare.)
Just two more days to go until FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2015! It feels a lot like Christmas in summer... because that's kind of what it is, really: free stuff on the day of an awesome celebration!
On the previous blog entries, we talked about titles targeted at new, young readers, as well as pop culture hits making their way to the printed, illustrated page. Now, we veer off the mainstream a tiny bit and talk about a few of the potential sleeper hits among the awesome books going up for grabs this #FCBD2015.
We're super excited about Free Comic Book Day, coming in just a few days (YES, IT'S THIS SATURDAY, MAY 2!). Are you ready to head to Fully Booked & Comic Odyssey this weekend?
One of the great things about #FCBD is that, year after year, it welcomes the once would-be comic lovers into this wonderful world! And thanks to a lot of crossover between comics and pop culture, particularly through movies, the transition is now more seamless--and fun--than ever!
Just a few more days to go until Free Comic Book Day 2015 at Fully Booked & Comic Odyssey!
On our last blog entry, we talked about the the #FCBD2015 titles for young readers and newbies to the world of comics; and the good news is, there's more! Here's Part 2 of that same list:
First up is DC Comics' Teen Titans GO!, which is always a crowd pleaser. Think of your favorite DC Heroes, but scaled back a decade or two, with an approachable, kid-friendly art style to match. This all-ages title offers a double-whammy of stories: first, Teen Titans Go! Chapter 10, and Scooby Doo Team Up! #6 featuring the Super Friends!
This May 2015, Victoria Velasco is returning to her old stomping grounds, Fully Booked, to hold a special paper flower making workshop for the month of May. Entitled Flores de Papel de Mayo, this School of Fun Things workshop will cover three kinds of basic paper flower making. Join her for what will be a fun afternoon of crafting!
