SANAYSAYA: WRITING HUMOROUS ESSAYS AND MEMOIRS
February 15 and 22, 2012
6:00pm to 9:00pm

Writing about real life events need not always be so serious. One can write about any life experience with humor. Learn how to inject humor and wit into your essays and memoirs from Bebang Sy, author of β€œIt’s a Mens World,” and one of the funniest young writers in the Philippines today.

Si Bebang Siy ay ipinanganak sa Quirino, Maynila. Nanirahan sa Paco, Pandacan, at Pasay, mga tigagatlong buwan. Nagkaisip sa Ermita. Lumipat sa Paranaque.Nag-aral sa Malate. Umuwi sa Las Pinas. Nagkolehiyo sa may bandang Philcoa. Nag-board sa may Kamias. Namamalengke sa Q-mart. Nagtatrabaho sa Mandaluyong. A, wala naman. Wala naman siyang planong gumawa ng mapa ng Metro Manila. Gusto lang niyang isalaysay sa iyo kung gaano kadugo ang ganitong uri ng mundo.
