Cebuano Literature: History

Related Resources : Cebuano Literature


In 1936 Cebuano writers started publishing anthologies; readers engaged in amateur literary criticism; and complaints of plagiarism livened up the weekly news. Periodicals that featured creative writing mushroomed, although most of these were short-lived.

Aside from the reinvigoration of Bisaya Magasin, Cebu-based publishing houses have also started tabloids in the language Banat News of Freeman Publications and SunStar SuperBalita of SunStar Publications. These tabloids have bigger circulation than their English counterparts.
