About 2ND AWNC: Publishers Roadshow 2022
In the modern and globalized world, it is more crucial than ever to preserve and advance one’s culture to support and represent our national identity globally through writing. The SMPI’s conference this 2022 will again serve as an avenue for our authors and writers to connect and present their work of craft and passion, as well as boost their skills and potential in research and writing related to the creation and publication of books and other works of literature in various formats and platforms. SMPI has been developing programs and activities to support the local publishing industry and Filipino authors. With this, launching a hybrid conference after two years of lockdown is an excellent way to adapt to new changes brought by the pandemic and to experience and revive the traditional passing and presenting of ideas and concepts of writing and publishing.
