Editing Service

I've had roughly nine years of experience in critiquing fiction, poetry, and writing in general. From 2014 to 2016, I was the workshop committee head of UP Writers Club where I handled the workshops and lectures necessary for members and applicants. Aside from having taken up workshop classes in UP Diliman, I was also a fellow for fiction in the 1st IWP Alumni Writers Workshop, the 2nd Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio Writers Workshop, and the 2nd GlobalGRACE-UP National LGBTQ Writers Workshop.
