Bikoliana Section@naga library

Two years ago, I joined the local writers in promoting Bikol Language and Literature and organized a one-day Bikol Bookfest. The program highlighted with a lecture-talk on Mainstreaming the Bikol Language and Literature graced by the National Artist Bienvenido Lumbera, held at the Ateneo de Naga University Arrupee Hall. 

I also partnered the Arejola Foundation for Social Responsibility for the 2006 Premio Tomas Arejola para sa Literaturang Bikolnon.

The occasion gave me the oppurtunity to met and became acquainted with local writers.

My time and effort now is focusing on establishing a Bicol Section.
