A picture may be worth a thousand words, but words can reveal a whole world of images. Transforming thoughts into words that amuse and inspire, crafting poems and stories filled with meaning and depth, experiencing the joy of developing your piece from start to finish—this is creative writing.
Discover how to handle writer’s block, and how to find your inspiration and sensitivity for writing. Learn how to develop a writing discipline that will take you from a first draft to a published piece. Let Filipina poet and two-time Palanca Award-winner Conchitina Cruz welcome you to the world of Basic Creative Writing.
Cruz won the Palanca Award for her poetry collections Second Skin (1996) and The Shortest Distance (2001). In 2006, her book Dark Hours won the National Book Award for Poetry. Her most recent book is elsewhere held and lingered, published by High Chair in 2008.
Cruz teaches creative writing and literature at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, where she received her undergraduate degree in creative writing, magna cum laude. She received her master of fine arts degree in writing from the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is currently working on her PhD in English at State University of New York-Albany.
