In this concluding chapter, three Cebuano writers — Simeon Dumdum, Timothy Mo, and Dr. Resil Mojares — discuss the Cebuano tradition of English-language creative writing, the legacy of Spanish and American colonialism, and English in the Philippines. Simeon Dumdum went to Ireland as a teenage seminarian before pursuing a legal career and is regarded as one of the best poets the Visayas has ever produced. Timothy Mo is a novelist and a regular visitor to the Philippines. Dr. Resil Mojares has been Director of the Center of Cebuano Studies at the University of San Carlos and has taught and lectured at universities in America, Europe, Japan, and Australia.
