After its successful second edition, the Virgin Labfest in Visayas returns with a new batch of fellows.

Following careful deliberation, the CCP and its Publicity Division names the eight fellows who will undergo a two-week mentorship program on the study and practice of dramatic writing for the stage: Gilmore Agustin, Jr., Melchie Marie Mediadero, Alvin Dave Bensig, Talisa Nicole Clavel, John Arbe Arroyo, Lilia Jean Garrovillo, Ira Dawn Myer Vinco, and Leezo Dionzon.

VLF, the theater festival of untried, untested and unstaged one-act plays, extends its reach to the region through the writing fellowship program by providing training and workshops to region-based writers, playwrights, and aspiring theater talents. 

With award-winning playwright Glenn Mas as mentor, the young and aspiring playwrights will attend lectures and writing sessions, undergo script critiquing, and interact with known playwrights and directors. They will have opportunities to study past VLF plays.

The fellows are expected to produce their own plays, written in their local language, either Cebuano, Hiligaynon or Kinaray-a at the Negros Museum in Bacolod City.
