HAY(NA)KU IN CEBU!
Cultural activist and writer Malou Alorro was gracious enough to send me photos of the hay(na)ku rearing up its perky face at Southwestern University. At the 1st Central Visayas Press Conference involving senior high school and college students and with the theme "Fighting Against False Media through Responsible and Fearless Journalism," the hay(na)ku was introduced when the local Women in the Literary Arts-Cebu discussed their journeys as writers! And the students were encouraged to do internet research to learn more about the poetry form, as well as to write their own! I am looking forward to original hay(na)ku poems in Cebuano! Meanwhile, here are pics:
