Bicol writers meet for Taboan 2016

NABUA, Camarines Sur -- Bicol writers will meet here Tuesday (November 15) for the Taboan 2016, an annual literary gathering program of the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA), which will be hosted by Camarines Sur Polytechnic College (CSPC) led by its President, Dr. Dulce F. Atian and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Teresita B. Salazar.

The Bicol Taboan will feature a conversation with writers in the Rinconada language that include Estelito Jacob, Ben Escoto, and Elbert Baeta; and a book launch of five children’s stories written by Carlo Arejola at the CSPC Campus here. The conversation will be moderated by poet and book designer, Victor Nierva.

Jacob, a teacher at the Camarines Sur National High School, is a prize-winning poet and has recently won the Writer’s Prize for the novel in the Rinconada language. Escoto, a Sorsoganon who has relocated in Iriga City, is a published poet in both Sorsoganon and Irigueno language; while Baeta, who is on leave from his teaching job at the Central Bicol State University of Agriculture, is a poet and is taking his graduate studies at the University of Santo Tomas. He is also the Project Coordinator of the Bicol Taboan which will also include a research and documentation project of two Bicol oral practices, bansagan and rapsak songs.

A Visayan word meaning “market place,” the Taboan used to be a national event, but this year, the National Committee on Literary Arts of the NCCA decided to hold it on an island-cluster basis, with three such activities set in Luzon which include Bicol, one in the Visayas and one in Mindanao, according to Frank Penones Jr., the Southern Luzon Coordinator of the NCLA.
