Welcome to LitArt Publishing! We are a homegrown publishing company that’s all about promoting the rich literary tradition of the Philippines. Let us take you through our journey and what we stand for as a company.
LitArt Publishing started as a collaboration between Mayumi Cruz and Kate Jam Placido in 2020. Back then, our goal was to provide a platform for writers and creatives to showcase their work. However, in 2022, after Kate took over, she decided to run with the vision she had for LitArt. She saw how Filipino writers were underrepresented in the publishing industry, especially those writing in regional languages. That’s when she decided to shift LitArt’s focus to promoting Filipino literature and accepting works in other Philippine languages.
Our mission at LitArt Publishing is to help emerging Filipino writers hone their skills and reach a wider audience. We want to be the bridge that connects writers with readers, and we believe everyone has a story worth telling. We’re passionate about celebrating the diversity and richness of our regional languages and showcasing the talent of Filipino writers.
Moving forward, our vision is to continue to grow and evolve as a company. We want to expand our reach and publish more works in different genres. We also want to establish ourselves as a reliable resource for Filipino writers looking for a platform to showcase their work.
We have been on hiatus for more than two years, but we are thrilled to announce that we are back and better than ever! We’re excited to add new writers to our family and start growing our team. We hope that you will be part of our journey starting today.
Thank you for joining us on this adventure. Let’s celebrate Filipino literature together!
