OUR OWN VOICE
Literary Ezine for Filipinos in the Diaspora

announces

THE IVY TERASAKA SHORT STORY COMPETITION

Ivy Terasaka was an emerging writer. For a short while, she was a familiar face and voice at various Singapore literary events. Ivy set up a website where some of her short stories appear along with a few of her ruminations she shared with family and friends. Her immense satisfaction in being part of her children's growing years is evident in the photographs she included in the site. In late 2003, Ivy discovered Our Own Voice and submitted a short story. We published The Last Time I Saw Nanay posthumously. To honor her dream of being a writer, we name this annual competition in her memory.

Short Stories must reflect the Filipino experience.
