Presented by PAWA (Philippine American Writers and Artists) in partnership with the San Francisco Public Library, this year’s theme is Hiraya/Emergence: Writing towards the Future.
Hiraya is a Tagalog word for imagination, for dreaming, the emergence of the flower and the fruit. What does Hiraya mean to you?
