IF YOU ARE A POET WHO'S ALIVE AND FILIPINO
perhaps you want to contact me for a new poetry project -- see below.
Actually, if you are dead and whether or not you are Filipino, feel free to contact Moi. But I digress ...
So if you are a LIVING FILIPINO POET, this Call Out (here's it's FACEBOOK LINK -- thanks to Vince Gotera) is for you:
Dear All...and you are all dear to me,
I think I've come up with a new anthology idea that would present Filipino English-language poems. But for this I need to get an idea of how many of us LIVING FILIPINO POETS are out there. Thus, if you are a Filipino poet writing in English or have had poems translated into English, please email me your name and email address.
That's it: Name and Email Address. To Ertabios@aol.com
Please forward this request to all nooks of the world.
If your poems are translated into English, please specify that in your emailed reply.
"Filipino" doesn't mean full-blooded (tho don't know what full-blooded means, but that's another story). You could have a drop and if you self-identify as Filipino, please inform me of your existence.
Though I know many of you, please don't assume I do. Even if we're tight, please still send me your name and address.
It would be ideal if I received all responses by December 31, 2013 but if you hear of this afterwards, shoot me an email too.
