Welcome message from Nick Carbo . . . (1 November 1997)

Here we are. This is a momentous occasion. Most of us Filipino writers live not only in the Philippines but are spread out all over the US and the world. This electronic medium, however, has afforded us an opportunity to unite in cyberspace to present a common front in unity and diversity. This is a chance to introduce ourselves to each other, to relay news, important literary events, to inform each other of our literary undertakings, to put Filipino, Filipino American (and Filipino whatever) literature on the American map and the world's stage. Please join us.

To join . . .

Using the e-mail account where you want FLIPS messages to go,
send a message with the following text in the body of the message:
sub flips
The message should be addressed to mailserv@uni.edu . . . leave
the subject line blank.

If, after joining FLIPS, you find it's not for you, then do the same thing, but instead type "unsub flips" in the body of the message.

If you have problems, contact Vince Gotera at vince.gotera@uni.edu . . .

We are grateful to the University of Northern Iowa for hosting FLIPS.
