In Trip to Quiapo, Ricky Lee shares his learnings from his eighteen years of writing scripts for films and TV, teaching scriptwriting at UP and Ateneo, and conducting scriptwriting workshops. This manual takes readers on a step-by-step journey through scriptwriting, whether following a formula or exploring alternative approaches, from concept to final draft. It doesn’t just tackle the process of putting words on paper; it also delves into facing life itself.

The book offers advice and insights from over 60 scriptwriters, directors, and producers interviewed for this project. It also includes cartoons, comics, and illustrations by Jess Abrera, Romy Buen, Beth Chionglo, Vincent Kua Jr., Topel Lee, Roxlee, Nonoy Marcelo, and Ely Buendia of Eraserheads; excerpts from 18 produced scripts; writing exercises; biographies of six screenplays; a guide for script evaluation; anecdotes; writing tips; and a hundred movie stills.

Ricky Lee, a renowned Filipino screenwriter, journalist, novelist, and playwright, brings his personal, engaging, and informal writing style to this collection. Conferred with the Order of National Artists of the Philippines for Film and Broadcast Arts in 2022, Lee has made significant contributions to Philippine cinema.
