We are a wandering bookstore that curates indie published books!
Last February, we launched a collection of poems entitled Forgotten Things to Say by Porcupine Strongwill. It rained spoken poetry and songs that day!
A month later, we participated at Performatura at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines.
A few hours later, we headed to the south and launched a memoir collection entitled Ekspedisyon – Biyahe sa Nakaraan and the paranormal mystery notebook, 8Letters Psychic Research.
The next day, we had a workshop on Indie Publishing at Diligence Cafe, UP Village. It was a full day event where we taught the process of creating books from scratch, up to marketing your books to the world.
These are ordinary days in our life as a curator at 8Letters. The culture of self-publishing is still new in the Philippines and there are still so much to explore and experiment on.
