Recognition of Winners
Dito sa UP Law: Many Voices, One Community

is UP Law’s first ever folio retrospective of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing inspiration from various multicultural literary folios published by international academic institutions, this online publication aims to capture the diverse experiences of our community in the most challenging period in recent history, expressed in literary and visual art forms. Apart from humanizing the harshness of academic life, the folio will also reflect a different color to the public’s perception of the life of UP Law students, faculty and admin staff by providing a platform for creative talents that are usually glossed over as unrelated to academic endeavors.

About the Folio

Dito sa UP Law: Many Voices, One Community is UP Law’s first ever literary folio retrospective of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing inspiration from various multicultural literary folios published by international academic institutions, this online publication aims to capture the diverse experiences of the UP Law Community in the most challenging period in recent history, expressed in literary and visual art forms. Apart from humanizing the harshness of academic life, the publication will also reflect a different color to the public’s perception of the life of the students, faculty and admin staff of the UP College of Law by providing a platform for creative talents that are usually glossed over as unrelated to academic endeavors.

___

Fever dream (I want to stay)

What is to wake? As days blur by and memory fails, so too does the line between dream and reality fade. One is as ephemeral as the other. Perhaps, it is in this realm of warped time and lost futures, of muted joys and terrors, where things make more sense.

Marissa Lucido Iñigo (Admin Staff)

 

___

Pagsulong sa kabila ng pagsubok

Bagamat matagal at paulit-ulit na tayong naghihigpit at lumuluwag sa mga kwarantin na ipinapatupad sa ating bansa, iisa lang ang nababakas sa mga buhay ng mga Pilipino araw-araw, pagsulong at pagtataguyod sa pamilya sa kabila ng pagsubok na sinasagupa araw-araw.

Nababata ng mga manggagawa ang lahat para sa kanilang mga pamilya.
Nadagdag isuot araw-araw ang proteksyon laban sa nakakahawang sakit,
pero talaga nga bang napoproteksyunan tayo sa totoong sakit sa bansa?

“Ano nga ba ang tunay na pagsubok? Ang Pandemya o ang sistema?”
– Tanong ng Pilipinong lumalaban.

Gianina O. Cabanilla (REPS)

 

___

Stay with me till the sun sets and we rise together

The fury, the fire, the glory of endings and beginnings,
the bone melting pain of it all

Razel Ann Pelandas Esteban (Student)

Life goes on…
and we will not stop pushing for a better tomorrow. Not now, not ever.
