Ang Palihang Rogelio Sicat o PRS ay nabuo sa ilalim ng Deparatamento ng Filipino at Panitikan ng Pilipinas ng Unibersidad ng Pilipinas Diliman. Layunin nitong mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga sumisibol na malikhaing manunulat sa larangan ng tula, maikling kuwento, dagli, sanaysay, at maikling kuwentong pambata, na maipakita ang kanilang galing sa pagsulat. Paraan din ito upang maibalik ng mga bihasang manunulat sa mga batang manunulat ang kanilang husay at kaalaman, estilo at teknik, at pagpapahalaga sa mga nagsusulat sa kanilang sariling wika.

But beyond the realm of performance, it situates the concept of síbod in the context of the group's cultural life.
