UST to offer undergrad course in Creative Writing

June 5, 2015, 9:24 p.m. - UST'S Faculty of Arts and Letters (Artlets) is set to offer a bachelor's degree (B.A.) in Creative Writing starting 2018.

"There is obviously an interest [in creative writing] on the part of the students," UST Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies (CCWLS) Director Cristina Pantoja-Hidalgo said in an interview. "Since a program is not yet offered by [UST], interested students may only improve their skills through workshops."

Filipino filmmaker, writer, and producer Peque Gallaga said quality independent or “indie” films were having difficulty getting a share of the spotlight, making Philippine movie industry almost “extinct.”
