Hello, my name is Romalyn Ante. I was born during Lipa City's 'fiesta'. So technically when I was born, the whole town was celebrating! At sixteen I migrated to England. I reside somewhere in the West Midlands, far from the glamour of London nor the beauty of an English countryside.

I used to run poetry and creative writing workshops at several venues including Blakenhall Writers, and with the young people of Base 25 in Wolverhampton.

For now, I am dedicating most of my time on developing my craft. I am currently a Jerwood/Arvon mentee, under the guidance of Pascale Petit. I'm loving the whole experience and I do feel my writing is improving! 

I also have my debut poetry pamphlet, Rice & Rain, published by V. Press in August 2017. 

My goal is to have a full collection in the next 3-5 years.

I have 2 dogs whom I love so much, Tia Maria, she is half rottweiler, half rhodesian ridgeback, and Jiraiya, half Rottweiler and half German shepherd. I also love my partner in life, my angel, Suriya. 

Things I 
food, food, food, food! (Japanese and Thai food especially!)
health & skin care

Flying to the Philippines

I was quite anxious flying back to the Philippines for my AIDF programme. It was my first time flying alone and I'm not too keen on plan...
