LIRA Poetry Clinic 2011, Bukas Na ang Aplikasyon

Binubuksang muli ng Linangan sa Imahen, Retorika, at Anyo (LIRA), ang kilala at pinakamatandang aktibong kapisanan ng mga makata sa wikang Filipino ang Taunang Klinikang Pampanulaan para sa mga nais lumahok. Ang lingguhang klase tuwing Sabado at Linggo mula 9:00 n.u. hanggang 5:00 n.h ay tatagal mula Hunyo hanggang Agosto, subalit magkakaroon pa rin ng iilang klase hanggang Nobyembre.

Upang makapagpatala, magpadala ng isang Word Document file na naglalaman ng mga sumusunod: isang pahinang bio-data, ID picture, numero ng telepono, at limang tula sa Filipino sa palihan@liraonline.org. (Hindi tatanggapin ang mga tulang nakasulat sa Ingles at ibang wika.) Maaari rin mag-iwan ng isang sobreng naglalaman ng mga kailangan sa pigeon hole ng LIRA sa UP Institute of Creative Writing, 2/F Faculty Center, College of Arts and Letters, UP Diliman, 1101 Quezon City.

Ang huling araw ng pagpapatalâ ay ang ika-30 ng Abril, 2011.

Sa ibang balita, pormal na manunumpa sa ika-5 ng Marso ang bagong halal na pamunuan ng LIRA. Si Phillip Kimpo Jr. ay nahalal sa kaniyang ikalawang termino bilang Pangulo, at sasamahan siya nina Mariane A.R.T. Abuan (Pangalawang Pangulo), Giancarlo Lauro C. Abrahan V (Kalihim), Deborah Rosalind D. Nieto (Ingat-Yaman), at Louie Jon A. Sanchez (Ugnayang Pangmadla).

Kasabay na manunumpa ang labin-isang bagong kasapi at “poet-volunteer” ng LIRA. Batay sa kanilang husay sa sining ng pagtula at sa kanilang kahandaang maglingkod para sa kalinangan ng bayan, sina Mark Arisgado, RR Cagalingan, Joseph Franco, Elmer Grampon, Vins Miranda, Conrad Nuyles, Imee Rabang, Rae Rival, Crecee Roldan, James Tana, at Shiela Virtusio ang napiling maging mga kasapi mula sa mga nagsipagtapos sa Klinikang Pampanulaan 2010.

Ipinagdiwang ng LIRA ang ika-25 taon nito sa nakaraang taon. Bilang bahagi ng anibersaryo nito, idinaos ng organisasyon ang ilang pangunahing proyekto, kabilang ang isang pambansang kumperensiya, dalawang pambansang timpalak sa tula, isang aklat, apat na chapbook, at ang Sining ng Tugma at Sukat 2010, ang libreng pagtuturo ng panitikan ng LIRA at NCCA sa siyam na bayan sa Luzon.

Itinatag ang LIRA ng Pambansang Alagad ng Sining sa Panitikan Virgilio S. Almario (mas kilala bilang Rio Alma) noong 1985. Sa mga palihan ng LIRA nagmula ang mga premyadong makata tulad nina Roberto at Rebecca Añonuevo, Romulo Baquiran Jr., Michael Coroza, Jerry Gracio, Vim Nadera, at Edgar Samar.
