My MODEL – The First Women Writers and Poetess in the Philippines

04 Jan

Writing poetry is one of my hobby and my pleasure since I was twelve. I remember my mom told me to go to sleep in the middle of the night while I was writing verses to fill my over flowing brain with words and thoughts. I was trained naturally to create lines and verses by myself with no mentor available. Thanks be to GOD.

No one push me to write poetry. And there is no need to do that. I find it effortless to write poems. My mind is agile enough to employ amazing colors, movements and beats enough to make one. But there are  a few writers and poet that I admire the most. They are the first women writers and poets in the Philippines.

Leona Florentino was claimed to be The First  Filipino Poetess according to a historian from Pampanga, Zoilo Galang. Leona was said to be from Ilocos. On the other hand Rosario de Leon who is from Pampanga was said to be The First Filipino Woman Novelist. Galang also added that there was another woman in the Visayas who said to be the first Filipino writer named Magalina Jalandoni. Along with the them was Felicidad Ocampo who said to be the The First Woman Filipino Novelist who wrote her novel in English.

Certainly they were all great women that deserve a recognition from us Filipinos. I believe Filipinos are indeed a great artist especially in the field of writing. That is the reason why I made them my model. I’m sure I will not be the first but sure enough that the passion will continue.
