Liwayway Lives!


"Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." - Mark Twain

Apparently, mourning for the 82-year old venerable magazine Liwayway have been premature. I have since heard from several sources that while Liwayway Publishing itself will close, the magazine will continue to exist under Manila Bulletin.

This is great news! One hopes that they will not only continue it, but update the format and content to better connect with current audiences. I despaired at the thought that this magazine will discontinue and now I can't wait to see what Bulletin has in store for it.

May, June July will still be designated as Liwayway months on this site in honor of the body of work and the history behind the magazine.
