KAUAI WRITERS CONFERENCE, May 1-3, 2015 www.kauaiwritersconference.com Three days of exploring and honing writing craft and improving publication odds on the breathtaking, healing island of Kauai.
The Kauai Writers Conference is dedicated to helping writers develop their skills while connecting to bestselling authors and top agents in an environment characterized by the Aloha spirit of sharing, humility, respect, and community. Our outstanding 2015 faculty includes authors Colson Whitehead, Kristin Hannah, Laura Moriarty, Vanessa Diffenbaugh, Lynn Cox, and Jill Landis, as well as agents and editors dedicated to helping you improve your work.
What makes this conference different? With only 150 attendees, the conference provides an intimate experience, direct access to faculty, and a strong community building emphasis. The schedule is chock-a-block with opportunities to receive essential feedback on your writing and to do hands-on skill building. You'll find humane opportunities to pitch literary agents and editors and to receive honest, helpful feedback from them. And of course, this all takes place in Hawaii on the most gorgeous island on the planet, where you'll receive abundant inspiration for your creative writing project.
Costs are reasonable and there's even an installment plan option. Don't hesitate to call with questions.
Join bestselling authors and agents in an intimate, oceanfront setting, with an emphasis on fiction and memoir. Program includes in-depth sessions on craft, publishing, and the writing life, with opportunities for agent/editor feedback.
