Writers’ Studio (WS), the non-profit organization spearheaded by award-winning and world-class writer, Ricky Lee, had successfully celebrated their reunion last April 5 at his residence in Xavierville, Katipunan.
It is simply called “Piyesta ng Manunulat”. It is a festivity of creative minds, fun conversations, good music and delectable food.
“We wanted to bring people together”, says Jerry Siapoc, project coordinator of Writers Studio. “It is always refreshing to see people gather and have fun. For them, it is like going back to their roots.”
Every two years, Ricky Lee gives a scriptwriting workshop for free and participants of this workshop become members of Writers Studio and volunteers of the organizations’ various projects.
“It’s Ricky’s way of giving back to the society”, adds Siapoc. “Writers Studio is not just an org or a club, it is a family.”
