Dramatic Monologue (Declamation)

declamationI enjoy writing declamation pieces. I consider it like writing a short story and a play at the same time. Of course a play is also a story in itself. I  just said it that way because whenever I write a dramatic monologue I basically follow the structure of the short story but I think of the theater whenever I am in the process of creating the dialogue.  

Put together in this part of my website are some of the declamation pieces I have written. Most of these were used by students and friends in the schools (where I worked) as their contest pieces in campus and inter-school competitions. Some were also used by the Bulacan Private Schools Association (BULPRISA), an organization of private schools in Bulacan (Philippines), for their declamation contests.
