Six students. Six mentors. Twelve stories. One country’s fate.
In 2017, college professor Jocelyn Martin invited her freshmen English classes to write fiction stories about the issue of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines. Six of the best stories were chosen for publication. Her fellow teacher Cyan Abad-Jugo invited professional writers to mentor these students in polishing their stories and in learning more about how to process this very complex topic, all while contributing their own written pieces in response.
What resulted was an anthology of creative responses to a crucial subject, a conversation between generations, and a memorial against oblivion.
Triggered is YA (young adult fiction) written by YA. Edited by Jocelyn S. Martin and Cyan Abad-Jugo.
