RAQUEL ERHARD

gusto ko sanang kumuha ng engineering kaso takot ako sa math, napunta sa UST at natagpuan ang pagsusulat, kaya graduate ng journalism. nagsulat sa tabloid, broadsheet, magazines at minsan pati na rin sa pader. kahit walang balak e nakapag-abroad, at dun nalaman na ang hirap nga palang maging OFW kaya natutong gumimik gabi-gabi.

ang magandang experience ko sa abroad? nakilala at na inlove sa isang banyaga. napadpad sa alemanya ng walang alam na salita kundi thai, tagalog at inglis. nagpakahirap na matutong mag-aleman kaya nalimutan ang magsalita ng tagalog, thai at inglis. nung mahimasmasan dahil hindi na makabuo ng isang sentence na tagalog o inglis o thai man lang, biglang natutong mag-blog.

pwede nyo akong bisitahin sa kwentongkengkay.com at homeworked.blogspot.com — andun ang mga kwento ko bilang nanay sa alemanya at ang mga culture shocking experiences ng buong pamilya ko sa bawat bisita nila sa pilipinas.

PANPIL PIPOL

Si Beverly Wico Siy o “Bebang” ay ipinanganak sa Maynila noong 10 Disyembre 1979. Nagtapos siya ng BA Malikhaing Pagsulat sa Filipino (cum laude) sa UP Diliman. Dati siyang manunulat/mananaliksik sa Creative Collective Center, Inc., isang non-government agency na nagtataguyod ng karapatan ng kababaihan. Isa sa mga proyekto nito ang P.S.R. Pag-ibig, Seksuwalidad at Relasyon radio program sa DZME 1530 khz kung saan naging co-anchor ni Dra. Sylvia Estrada-Claudio si Bebang. Naging fellow na si Bebang sa UP at UST Writers Workshops at naging aktibong bahagi ng pamunuan ng UP Writers Club at LIRA. Ngayon, nagtuturo siya ng Filipino sa UST. Masaya siya kapag siya ay nakakatapos ng  kuwento.

Si Haidee Pineda ay isang metal-rakistang hindi halata sa itsura. Wala s’yang permanenteng tirahan at kung saan-saan lugar na nakarating kaya madalas s’yang tawaging NPA (no permanent address) ng mga kaibigan at kakilala. Naging manunulat siya sa UP Diliman Information Office. Minsan na rin s’yang nakipagsapalaran sa GMA 7 Unang Hirit bilang mananaliksik. Siya ay nakapagtapos ng kursong BA Journalism sa College of Mass Communication ng UP Diliman at kasalukuyang kumukuha ng M.A. in Filipino (Malikhaing Pagsulat) sa College of Arts and Letters sa naturang ding unibersidad. Noong taong 2000, naging editor-in-chief siya ng Campus Journal, ang pang-laboratoryong pahayagan ng UP College of Mass Communication. Ilan sa kanyang mga interes ay ang magbasa ng kahit ano, magsulat ng maiikling kuwento at romance novels, manood ng animé, ng sine at kung ano ang mapagtripan sa tv; at hilig din n’yang sagutan ang mga sarbey sa Friendster.

Si Wennie Fajilan ay gradweyt ng BA Araling Pilipino, cum laude sa UP DIliman. Kasalukuyan siyang kumukuha ng kursong masterado sa Araling Pilipino. Naging guro siya ng Filipino at Panitikan sa Infant Jesus Academy, Philippine Science High School, De La Salle University at ngayon sa UST. Mahilig siya sa sabaw lalo na ng sinigang, goto at lomi. Trip niya rin ang paglalakad, pamumundok at pagkukweba. Gusto niyang matuto magbike pero ayaw niyang sumemplang. Proud siyang nakalapat sa ilalim ng dagat kahit di siya marunong lumangoy.

Si Rita dela Cruz o “Rayts” ay ipinanganak sa Virac, Catanduanes ngunit lumaki at nagkaisip sa Los Banos, Laguna. Nagtapos siya ng B.S. Development Communication (major in development journalism) sa UPLB. Bagamat nagtatrabaho na siya sa isang ahensiya ng gobyerno bilang isang manunulat, managing editor, layout artist, at litratista, tinatapos rin niya ang kayang MA sa Filipino (Malikhaing Pagsulat) sa UP Diliman. Mahilig siya sa kape, pelikula, potograpiya, musika, magbasa ng fiction at tula, maglakbay at tumingala sa langit. Masaya siya kapag tumatakbo sa track.

Si Lourdes G. Zorilla o “Jing” ay ipinanganak at lumaki sa Quezon ngunit ngayon ay certified Manileña na dahil sa tagal niya sa lungsod. Kasalukuyang nagtuturo si Jing ng panitikang Filipino at komunikasyon sa FEU-FERN at Our Lady of Fatima University (Quezon City Campus) habang tinatapos ang kanyang MA Filipino-Panitikan sa UP Diliman kung saan din siya nagtapos ng kursong BA Araling Pilipino major in Philippine Studies. Bukod sa pagtuturo, abala rin siya sa pagsusulat ng maikling kwento, tula at dula. Isa siya sa mga founding member ng UP Ugnayan ng Manunulat (Ugat).

Si Mar Anthony Simon dela Cruz ay laking Santiago City , Isabela. Ayaw na ayaw niyang nagpapakulong sa apat na sulok ng opisina kaya hanggang ngayon ay wala siyang permanenteng trabaho. Ikinabubuhay niya ngayon ang pagraket-raket sa pagsusulat. Nagtapos siya ng BA Aralin sa Sining sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas (Diliman), at kasalukuyang nasa programang MA Malikhaing Pagsulat sa parehong unibersidad. Adik sa pineapple juice at fan ni Angel Locsin. Pangarap niyang makapag-perform nang live sa Araneta Coliseum.
