This event, organized by the late poet's friends and family in partnership with the De La Salle University (DLSU), Department of Literature and the Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center (BNSCWC), aims to continue Guevarra's work by encouraging interest in poetry in the country and at the same time give talented writers a chance to be recognized in their field.
