I’ve finally made time to publish some of my older creative writing work on the Daily Pagerie store. 🎉
There’s a new Creative Work category where you’ll find poetry, essays, and other creative writing that I’ve done in the past. They’re digital downloads that’ll save the product to your computer after going through the order process.
These are the first three:
Turns of Place (2019) is an intimate letter exchange between writers and friends, Stephanie Gonzaga and Johna Baylon, on travel, home, and the act of journeying. The project began in 2014 and has spanned a total of five years. It’s a collaboration that has made not only our writing better, but our friendship stronger than ever.
Mosaic (2015) is another collaborative writing project with my fellows at The Story Cartel course. I’m not sure if it’s still accepting students, but the outcome is this collection of poetry, short stories, and novel excerpts my fellow writers and I made the time and effort to share and self-publish.
The Experiment (2017) was an unfinished collaboration between myself, artist and photographer Arabella Paner (my classmate in my Literature classes), and fiction writer Wina Puangco. Rather than stowing the works away, I turned our submissions into a “finished” book.
Having my own online store for my creative work is a dream/goal I’ve wanted to work on for a long time. It gives me peace-of-mind knowing that with the Daily Pagerie, no third-party platform will impact my ability to sell or share my work with others. And with this mini launch, I’ll be able to publish newer work on the site! 😄
The only third-party platform that has gained my trust is Gumroad, so you’ll still find these three books in my Gumroad store. It’s where my digital publishing journey began and one I intend to continue as I work on building and solidifying a career in writing and publishing.
It’s a small but exciting step and I can’t wait to see what’s gonna unravel next.
