Jose Rizal is regarded as Asia's Renaissance Man. He was a student of life, an extensive traveler, and a prolific writer of letters, essays, poems, and stories.

In celebration of Rizal's 150th birth anniversary, National Artist for Literature Virgilio Almario will shed new light on the merits and impact of our National Hero's literary works. A forum with other noted Philippine writers will follow the seminar. Teachers are also invited to a workshop on How to Teach Rizal after the lecture and forum.

The participation fee is Php 250. It includes snacks, a copy of Rio Alma's book Rizal Makata, and a certificate. Pre-registration is required to secure a slot.
