Tongue Ina x UNDER THE STORM shortlist

After a conversation with a friend a while ago, I thought of drawing* this which is based on an image we have came across during our exchanges. Then I attempted to crossbreed the image with Nyarlathotep, aka The Crawling Chaos, an Outer God from the pages of Lovecraftian lore.


AND it felt good after knowing that I made it on the shortlist of UNDER THE STORM: An Anthology of Contemporary Philippine Poetry. This is the reason why I exclaimed "Tongue Ina" and attempted to relate it with the drawing so it would seem that the image and this shameless plug actually have something to do with one another. I would copy and paste the waves of the shortlists here together with the press release on the festival's facebook page. (I have also removed the numbers to make the long shortlist seem really short.)

"We’ve received over 290 submissions for the anthology. Our sincerest thanks to everyone who has submitted. We are choosing 113 poems from 113 of the poets who’ve submitted. This is in commemoration of our 113 years of Independence, of being Filipinos, of being Filipino writers.
