Creative Writing Classes with Modern Academy: Image Culture Arts at the BGC

When in Manila, stretch your creative juices and share your stories.  Stories are immortal and as long as you share them, you live forever!


Before I attended Creative Writing Classes at Modern Academy, I had no formal training with writing.  I think everyone can share their own stories in every way they want, but not everyone can share their stories beautifuly and effectively. 


I have been writing for a while now.  I have been writing for my own blog and other online publications.  Sometimes I find my thoughts so disorganized when I write and I don’t know how to arrange these thoughts well.  I figured, it’s about time I take writing classes.

Aileen Santos and her Creative Writing Students

When I heard that Aileen Santos who teaches Creative Writing Class at Modern Academy is having another workshop, I immediately signed up!  I’ve heard great things about Aileen from my friends about writing, relationships and even love – three words that are always related to each other.  And my friend told me that the best class he ever took here in Manila is Aileen’s Creative Writing Class.

 The Creative Writing Class is loacated beautifully in the Burgos Circle strip of restaurants at The Fort, Taguig.  

Classrooms and condusive for learning and they are equipped with visual aid tools. I miss my college days!

My Stories:

I shared in my personal blog, two out of the 5 stories I wrote during our workshop.

Let me know what you think and comment on my blog! It will be much appreciated.

If you’re a blogger, an aspiring writer or you want to put your stories into writing – make it better and take writing classes. There’s nothing wrong with being self taught, and just doing your thing (that’s what I have been doing). But putting structure in your stories, organizing your ideas, learning different writing techniques and aligning them to your readers’ interest would help you share your stories better.


Aileen has a wide experience when it comes to writing in different medium: TV, script writing, print, online and others.  So, if you have any questions about advancing your writing career she’s the best person in Manila to help you with this!

When in Manila, LIVE FOREVER!
