The Bicol House Journal Debuts Monday

On Monday, we revive The Bicol House Journal on the online pages of Cbanga360. It will follow the same attitude and aspiration in publishing literary content as before.

Looking back we republish here the idealism and objective of the BHJ: The Bicol House Journal is a modest attempt at publishing an on-line anthology -in-progress as a celebration of good writing in Bicol, English and in some light Tagalog, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry that reflect the Bicolano spirit of adventure, the tenacity and exploration of the soul, the boundless energies of imagination, the heartfelt experience of fun, the strength and endurance of the human body. Otherwise, these are some of our favorite- travel, sex, music, humor, love, loss, art, dreams, childhood, coming of age.


Online submission guidelines:

Share only your own stories and nonfiction pieces and we will feature it here.

Send your submission pasted in the body of an email, include your name, email address, and a short bio. Please title the subject line of your email with the category (fiction, nonfiction, or poetry) and title of your piece, for example, Poetry Submission: Title- My Greatest Poem. Both new and previously published works are welcome.
