The Good Trade, a zero-waste + sustainable fair
July 19 (Central Square, Bonifacio Global City)

Celebrating one year of community in partnership with GCash & GCash Forest

Hell yes, friends! It’s been a year since we started giving sh*t about things that matter. As The Good Trade turns one, we’d like to celebrate this milestone with you. After all, we’re here because of our collective journeys to make the world better.

This July let’s celebrate our progress as a community by stepping up our game with #AllTheGoodStuff!

Let’s keep believing in our whys and showing up for our purpose. Cheers to making an impact everyday!

Due to mall policy changes, there will be no donation, recyclables & alteration stations at the fair on July 19-21. These will be part of Close The Loop at WeWork on July 27 1-4pm.

The Basics of Creative NonFiction with Screenwriter Wanggo Gallaga
July 20 (The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Legazpi Village)

Just because you write something factual and true does not mean it cannot be told with the flair of drama or a touch of comedy. Take it from poet and filmmaker Wanggo Gallaga when he says that “the written form of nonfiction is far from being boring”.

Gallaga will be facilitating “The Basics of Creative NonFiction”, a writing workshop that will focus on the creative aspect of the writing process. The workshop will be on July 20, 2019 from 1pm to 4pm at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Rada Street, Makati City.

The course will include guidelines for creative nonfiction, helpful prompts, and drafting tools. There will also be a discussion on the basic structure of stories (fiction) and then basic structures of metaphors (poetry) and how to use these to liven up creative nonfiction work.

“The Basics of Creative NonFiction with Wanggo Gallaga” will be on July 20, 2019 at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Rada Street, Legazpi Village, Makati. There is a P1,000 fee per person, which cover light snacks and a certificate of participation. Slots are limited. Email writersblock.ph@gmail.com or check out Writer’s Block Philippines on Facebook for details.
