Farmers’ Accomplishments and Farming Success told via Tales to Tell Writeshop

ISD Chief Ms. Antonieta J. Arceo shares some salient points in writing success stories during the writeshop proper.

Mexico City, Pampanga---Armed with the commitment and continuous effort to document and capture success stories of farmers as its partners in food security and sustainable development, the Information Services Division (ISD) mounted a week-long writeshop recently.

In her opening statement, Information Services Division (ISD) Chief Ms. Antonieta J. Arceo remarked “Your success stories do not only serve as means by which you tell the tales of your partners. It also allows us to show them that ATI is doing something for the lives of our farmers and extension workers.”

Dubbed as Tales to Tell: Writeshop on Success Stories in Agriculture, the writeshop aimed to make the participants develop well-written success story articles with photos of Filipino farmers, extension workers, and other stakeholders particularly those involved in the industries of rice, corn, high value crops, and organic agriculture.

Specifically, the 14 participants consisting mostly of content developers were able to review and apply the principles and guidelines in writing feature stories for print; apply the standards in capturing good photos; and apply the principles and guidelines in copy editing and proofreading articles through peer review.

Following the success of Morphoses, a story book collection of farmers’ success stories compiled from the 16 Regional Training Centers of the Institute , a second attempt to package another book of farmers’ success stories is in the works.

Ms. Erica Vizcarra and Mr. Karl Louise Salibio, Information Officer and Media Production Specialist respectively, shared their Morphoses experience to the participants and gave tips and suggestions regarding the book production.
 
The writeshop transpired at The Lakeshore in Mexico, Pampanga on May 8-12, 2017.
