1. Two stories of mine, “Bordertown” and “Benito Salazar’s Last Creation,” are going to be published in Sydney in a book titled Salu-Salo: An Anthology of Philippine-Australian Writings. It”ll be jointly published by the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre in Liverpool and Blacktown Arts Centre.

2. The book is going to be launched on May 25, 2008, by the Sydney Writers Festival. Which is only the biggest literary event of its kind in Australia and one of the biggest book fairs in the world. And the guestlist for being a writer is invitation-only, and I’m going to be receiving one.

3. I’m going to ask for leave from work, apply for a tourist visa, try to get cheap airfare, and go to Sydney to attend the launch and see some friends. And hopefully rub shoulders with writers and editors and publishers there.
