PRIOR EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

“I’m a veteran, and this was an exceptionally well-organized, conceptually-rich, generous, fruitful and peaceful gathering. I’m amazed that, at least from my point of view, there were no visible glitches in any of the complicated logistics. It was genuine Aloha spirit that made the Kauai magic happen.”

PRIOR EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

Four days of close personal guidance in small groups with living masters of their genres. Choose from Fiction, Memoir, Screenwriting, Poetry and more.

“If there be such a thing as a spirit of place, this conference has and profits from it: beauty abounding, an open-hearted generosity, a glad dedication to the work of words. You will arrive and stay enthralled.” — Nicholas Delbanco

One on one sessions with top literary agents who came to Kauai to get to know you and your work.

“As a literary agent, I’ve been to more than fifty of these conferences. Kauai Writers Conference is my absolute favorite. Usually I’m lucky if I find one author I want to represent. Last year I met seven here with real promise. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s in paradise. ” — Andy Ross
