Yesterday, I met with Maricar Liberato, a staff writer at Filipinas Magazine, to talk about a collaboration that we've been dreaming about for years.
I met Maricar in 2003, when I was still at San Francisco State University and needed a part-time job. Public transportation can be expensive if you get caught without a ticket! However, I settled for a non-paying internship at Filipinas Magazine and rode the train gratis.
The result: one of the best learning experiences I've ever had and friendships to last a lifetime.
The collaboration: Co-editing a Filipino collection of literature.
This weekend, we did a lot of brainstorming and planning. We have a lot to work on before we next touch base. I came away from our meeting invigorated and excited about our plans.
Expect to see a Call for Submissions here and elsewhere soon.
