Semi Final 1 copy for website



As the university’s official literary and artistic publication for over sixty years, Heights continues to cultivate the writing community of the Ateneo. The publication commits itself to providing opportunities for student writers to develop their craft alongside established and multi-awarded literary figures in the Philippine writing community.

The Ateneo Heights Writers Workshop (AHWW) is an annual three-day, all-expense-paid event for ten of the most promising young writers in the university that will be held from February 4 to 6, 2017.

The workshop is open to current students of the Loyola Schools. Interested applicants must fill out an application form at and submit a .ZIP folder of a portfolio (including .docx and .pdf copies of each file) of any of the following:

  • Fiction: 2 short stories (5,000 words maximum each)
  • Non-fiction: 2 essays (5,000 words maximum each)
  • Poetry: 3-5 poems

Applicants may submit works in either English or Filipino. Applications undergo blind deliberations; the profiles of the authors are not considered in the selection. The name of the author must not appear in any of the works.  Send the portfolios to by November 19, 2016 on or before 12:00 pm. Late submissions will be disregarded.

Because the workshop hopes to emphasize the writer’s constant development of craft, the fellows will be given an opportunity to continue and revise their works for publication in a special online zine later in the school year.

All inquiries may be directed to or to Marco Bartolome (Associate Editor and Workshop Director) at 0917 511 7950. You may also drop by MVP 202 for any questions or concerns.
