There are hundreds of published Ilokano writers (or Ilocano writers) from the time Ilokano literature emerged through the efforts of Ilokano ilustrados in the 18th century to the present. The following list of Ilokano writers is not extensive nor comprehensive enough to be considered a directory. It is expected to continue growing as we attempt to make a complete directory.
Also named in the list are people from past centuries like Pedro Bucaneg, Leona Florentino and Isabelo de los Reyes, and other writers in English like Carlos Bulosan, Manuel Arguilla, Salvador P. Lopez, Carlos Angeles, F. Sionil Jose, and Gregorio Brillantes. Jose Maria Sison, founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines is in the roster since he is an Ilokano writer and poet from Cabugao, Ilocos Sur (he claimed in an interview that he had an Ilokano short story published in Bannawag magazine when he was still a high school student). Also listed is former Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos since he was also a writer and even served as honorary president of GUMIL Filipinas (GF) in the 1970s during the incumbency of then-GF President Dr. Godofredo S. Reyes.

Famous quotes containing the word writers:
“Hemingway is great in that alone of living writers he has saturated his work with the memory of physical pleasure, with sunshine and salt water, with food, wine and making love and the remorse which is the shadow of that sun.”
—Cyril Connolly (19031974)
