Think literature can only be found in libraries and bookstores? Think again! The UP Writers Club is proud to present our mobile zine-selling event "Have You Zine It?"
Our zines, which are self-published literary booklets, are all made by members and alumni of the UP Writers Club. This week will find us coming out from the wilderness of the CAL kubo complex to bring home-grown literature to a college near you.
So if you want to read great stories and poems, but don't want to spend a fortune on them, come visit us at the colleges and on the dates indicated! Who knows: they might inspire you to make your own zine in the future. All you need are the desire to be heard, something important to say and your friendly neighborhood photocopier.

Glimpse into the lives of Filipinos in Singapore, and see Singapore from their eyes. This Philippine-Singapore anthology presents a spread of concerns written in three genres by 30 contributors. The essays, stories, and poems trace well-traveled routes of family, friendship, faith, and love; they enter intimate spaces opened up by the sleight of the writer’s hand, experiences that would have been closed to the naked eye and an unimaginative heart.
