2. The literary work expresses Bangsamoro personal and/or collective accounts of hope, struggle, peace, and development.
3. Only original and unpublished literary and personal essays (such as memoirs and profiles), short stories, poetry, and folk narratives which should be in English or in any Bangsamoro languages with English translation, will be accepted.
4. There is no word count limit for essays, poetry, and folk narratives; for short stories, however, a maximum of 7,500 words is allowed.
5. Every writer is allowed to submit a maximum of five entries.
6. Specifically indicating Bangsamoro affiliation, the writer’s bionote must be submitted with every work. Data collected will be used exclusively for the purpose of the conference. Click this link for the template. https://forms.gle/d4EZJPUTssv4UoqH8
