CALAMBA—An esports journalism workshop is now being planned by both esports publisher Moonton and National University Laguna after formally forging a partnership, a first of its kind in the Philippine collegiate sports scene.

Moonton's regional PR manager Keith Medrano said it will be the first thing in the pipeline now that the alliance has been formalized.

"Right now, the most immediate one would be the esports and gaming journalism workshop," Medrano said during the press conference inside NU Laguna's Inspire Sports Academy on Thursday.

With the help of the MPL Philippines Press Corps, Moonton conducted a series of esports journalism workshops in Metro Manila that even saw some NU Laguna students in attendance.

To make it more convenient this time, Moonton is conducting an esports journalism workshop right inside NU Laguna's campus here.

"This time, we want to make it bigger and cater to the students of NU Laguna specifically to hone their skills in terms of writing," Medrano further said.

Josefina San Miguel, NU Laguna's senior academic director, then said that the esports journalism workshop could be opened as well to students from NU's other CALABARZON campuses in Dasmarinas and Lipa if slots are available.

San Miguel also said if there is positive feedback, the esports journalism workshop could be done as well in other colleges here like Letran, Lyceum, and Perpetual Help and even in nearby cities like the University of the Philippines Los Banos and Mapua Malayan College Laguna in Cabuyao.

Moonton community manager Ken Ryan Lee then said that the said workshop will be done in other colleges as well, which will be revealed in the coming days.
