Kuwentista ng mga Tsikiting (KUTING) is a private, non-stock, non-profit organization which aims to be the Philippines’ foremost writers’ organization that sets and upholds the standards of excellence in the development of literature for children.

KUTING was born out of a 1995 UP Writers’ Workshop that focused on writing literature for children.  After the workshop, Perpi Alipon, Robert Magnuson, Carla Pacis, Augie Rivera, Lara Saguisag and May Tobias decided to form the group to sustain the writing momentum that they gained during the workshop.  They believed that sharing and discussing one’s work with fellow writers or budding writers of literature for children can help hone one’s craft and improve the quality of literary texts produced.  They also believed that meeting regularly with people who share the same passion for writing literature for children can serve as a good motivation and inspiration for creating more literary texts for children to enjoy.
