We have invited a couple of judges to read all entries for The Learning Site’s Christmas Carnival Writing Contest and give their say about the inspirational stories. Let’s get to know them.
Kai has been stringing one word after the other since grade school. However, the writing gods took pity on her and decided that it’s about time that she earn a living out of weaving words since 2009. She mostly writes content for the web – from SEO to press releases to advertising blurbs. In between days, she secretly dreams of herself as a poet and a short story writer. She wants her coffee black with two teaspoons of muscovado in it. Books (lots of it!), aimless walks, bus window views, mountain trips, the ocean and banana walnut cakes are just some of the things which she currently live for. Kai is currently a senior SEO content writer for a company who knows how to treat their employees well.
Insoy has been writing full-time for more than ten years now. He is currently an editor and a columnist of Sun.Star. Further, his songwriting passion has made him one the pillars of the music industry in Cebu. Despite the fact that he is the lead singer of Missing Filemon, the most famous BisRock band in the country, he prefers being in quiet, intimate places. Insoy is also connected with Cebu Normal University as a part-time faculty member, teaching English Grammar and English Literature. He loves to cook (mostly local dishes), he hates wearing shirts with collar and he is a proud father of a two-year old kid.
