London, England and Queens, New York
Manuscript Seminar with Tim MacGabhann
Co-Winner, Grace Paley Fellowship
I’m a Filipino-British writer currently based in London but who also calls New York home. I am a 2021 Desert Nights, Rising Stars Fellow at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing in Tempe, Arizona, a three-time Finalist in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, and a mentor for PitchWars and #DVMentor. My writing has received support from the Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Cill Rialaig , Ireland, Norton Island Residency, Maine, Faber Llull Residency, Spain, Hambidge , InCahoots , and Sundress Academy of the Arts. “The Party”, a short story about Vita Sackville-West, was performed at the Tara Arts Theatre, London. I’ve received fellowships and/or scholarships from Squaw Valley Community of Writers, Aspen Summer Words, Colgate Writers’ Conference, Napa Valley Writers’ Conference, Loft Literary, Key West Literary Seminar, and the Arvon Foundation.
I’m passionate about writing fiction that challenges how we view history. I’m excited to be in Mexico, where a significant part of my new novel is set, and to immerse myself in the unique culture and camaraderie of Under the Volcano.
