Buka is an inspirational writing talk that was first held in PUP Sta. Mesa last 07/28/2016, it’s a brainchild project by Verlin Santos of Titik and Ansherina Jazul of  Kalye Thoughts.

Its objective is to promote poetry/spoken poetry, writing stories, support of Filipino writers, to uplift Philippine literature and to give inspirational drive to all students to read and write.

The workshop also focuses on composition of spoken poetry; writing poems traditionally or in modern form. Some of the topics include:

1. Why we write?
2. Techniques to fight writers block
3. Image, Symbol and Metaphor
4. Length and Rhyme
5. Rhetoric

We believe that writing and spoken poetry is not just to about entertainment, but also to educate and celebrate how rich the Filipino culture is.
