Letters make up words. Words make up stories. But what if we have an infinite of them? Then we’ll have more stories to read and tell, and hopefully, the world will become a better place. That is what we are aiming for at 8Letters.
8Letters, which was established in June 24, 2016, was the brainchild project of Cindy Wong and Marigold Uy. 8Letter aims to promote talented indie artists in the Philippines. There are endless stories just waiting to be told or shared. Indie or independent artists struggle to showcase their art in a very saturated market. The 8Letters Team is here to help.
