Mookie Katigbak: The Radical Poet

We recognize this Palanca Award winner in our list of 15 Fun, Fearless Females for 2012. View outtakes from our shoot with the literary wonder!

Mookie KatigbakWe know that Cosmo girls are avid readers--especially when it comes to summer reads, chicklit, and relationship-themed books--but how many of you are fans of poetry? It may not be as popular as other forms of literature, but there's one gal who believes poetry can find a wider audience among mainstream Filipino readers.

Palanca Award winner Mookie Katigbak-Lacuesta is the woman behind the Metro Serye series, an anthology of work by young, up-and-coming writers and artists. This foldable, pocket-sized literature sampler encourages more people to discover new homegrown talent in a convenient format that they can carry with them wherever they go.

The charming and bubbly poet met us at the Ronac Art Center for her 2012 Fun, Fearless Female Awards shoot, and we got to chat with her about her literary life. Watch for her video footage and interview, coming soon on CosmoTV!
