About me

I’m Mina Deocareza, a writer and editor based in Mandaluyong City, Philippines. I hold a BA in Creative Writing from UP Diliman. Currently, I am pursuing my MA in Language and Literacy Education at UP Open University.

I work as an editor for MSN Philippines, a news portal owned by Microsoft. I also serve as the editorial director of a local menstrual cup brand called Sinaya Cup.

My works have already appeared in The Philippine Daily Inquirer, Men’s Health Magazine, Clavel Sneaker Magazine, and Philippines Graphic. I was a writing fellow for creative nonfiction at the UST National Writers Workshop 2019.

Apart from this site, I also maintain a book blog called Maalikabook.

For collaborations, partnerships, and other concerns, you may shoot me an email at lrtqueen@hotmail.com.

So, why lrtqueen?

As an undergrad, I was once caught cutting classes by my own prof. Worse, he found out that I was actually on the LRT with a guy. That same afternoon, lrtqueen was born.
