Dear Writer,

We are pleased to inform you that a national research team composed of educators, creative writers and cultural leaders, is embarking on a study geared towards the development of Iloko literature vis-a-vis global competitiveness.

The study shall assess the literary works of award-winning Ilokano writers across the globe, and at the same time, study their socio-demographic profile .

Respondent writers are members of GUMIL Filipinas, Inc., the umbrella organization of Ilokano writers, while respondent readers are Ilokanos residing here and abroad. Bannawag, the long-time Ilokano magazine being circulated in the Philippines and abroad, shall be the main point of reference in the national Iloko readership survey.

Every writer who wish to be part of this milestone of profiling our own Ilokano writers, including his or her literary works, is cordially invited to participate in this study. Deadline for submitting completely filled-up form is August 08, 2006.

The outcome of this research shall serve as main input in the preparation of a paper on the development of Iloko literature and in updating the 2006 GUMIL Directory.

The study is undertaken in close coordination with GUMIL Filipinas (GF), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA),, National Book Development Board (NBDB), Bannawag and the Nakem Centennial Conference Secretariat.

Your valued input in this study will surely make a difference!

Very truly yours,

Head, Iloko Literary Research Team ‘06
& Secretary-General, GUMIL Filipinas
