Literature does not only affect the country of origin, especially the English literature. If you've ever been in a bookstore, you probably realized that most of the books found there are in English and are written by different nationalities. That is how widespread international literature is. Just like those authors, you can also publish your own book (only if you have proper knowledge and creativeness). Through that, you can promote your country. Just by having your last name on the book will already be a part of the Filipino pride.
