Individual Consultations with Kevin Larimer.


Kevin Larimer

Poets and Writers is the nation’s leading organization serving authors. In addition to its monthly magazine, it provides a wide range of services to help authors with all aspects of their work and their careers.

Kevin Larimer, as editor-in-chief, heads not only Poets and Writers magazine, but all of their educational programs. He is widely admired as one of the most knowledgeable people on the craft and business of writing. This year marks his fourth appearance at the Kauai Writers Conference. We have invited him each year because of the depth of his knowledge and his deeply felt desire to help writers in all stages of their careers.

A publishing consultation with Kevin is a rare opportunity. Even if you live in New York City, you would find it difficult to or impossible to sit with him in person to get his advice. On Kauai it is easy. We know of no other person as well positioned as Kevin to understand your unique journey as a writer and give you insightful advice on how to achieve your goals. Whether you are writing fiction, memoir, nonfiction or poetry, you’ll find a session with Kevin a milestone in your evolution as an author.

In addition to his broad knowledge of book publishing, Kevin is also intimately familiar with all of the leading literary magazines. Often writers overlook the importance of these publications. Getting your work, or excerpts of it, in print in one of them can be a crucial step for you, and Kevin can help you learn how to do it.
