‘Tula Kanto Koronadal’ gathers young poets from South Cotabato

The Sarangani Writers League (SWL) and Alitaptap Bookshop brought together young poets and spoken word artists from South Cotabato for the ‘Tula Kanto Koronadal.’

In line with the celebration of the 126th Philippine Independence Day, these young artists performed their poetry pieces with the theme of “Kalayaan” on Wednesday, June 12.

In his Facebook post, SWL Executive Director Genory Vanz Alfasain stated, “This event will serve as an inspiration for similar literary events in Koronadal and the South Cotabato province.”

“We aspire for these events to be the spark that reignites the literary community here, motivating individuals and groups to invest their energies in launching their literary projects,” he added.

Alfasain also mentioned that SWL’s efforts are “aimed at encouraging, inspiring, and rekindling the literary initiatives that have long been a part of the region’s heritage.”

SWL is committed to offering help, support, and collaboration to those who share their passion for championing the literary legacy of our region.

“Alitaptap Bookshop is more than just a bookshop. We envision it as a collaboration hub for local writers, artists, and advocates,” said owner Jennie Arado.

Alitaptap Bookshop serves as a dynamic catalyst for the region's literary and reading initiatives, offering robust support to the vibrant community of writers and readers in South Cotabato.

Tula Kanto is set to expand its reach with upcoming events in Tacurong and Kidapawan cities, bringing its unique blend of poetry and performance to an even wider audience.
