Being a professional writer has become a job that requires everyday interaction—with sources, editors, fellow writers, and even members of the press. As such, writers may feel the need to hone different sets of skills. One such method is by learning techniques from other seasoned writers and publishers.

With over 75 years of experience in the business of literature, National Book Store knows this well, and has been hosting the annual Philippine Readers and Writers Festival. This year, the festival will be held from August 25 to 27, at Raffles Makati.

Aside from the impressive roster of local authors, publishing professionals, and industry leaders, National Book Store has also invited two international authors to join the celebration. Mark Z. Danielewski, an award-winning author who is best known for House of Leaves, will be in the Author Spotlight forum on August 26. Pierce Brown, author of the bestselling Red Rising science fiction trilogy, will be meeting fans and talking about his writing on August 27.
