KWW 2014 will feature Kristiana Kahakauwila
Kristiana Kahakauwila, a native Hawaiian, was raised in Southern California. She earned a master’s in fine arts from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree in comparative literature from Princeton. Currently, Kristiana is an assistant professor of creative writing at Western Washington University. Her debut book of fiction, This is Paradise, was chosen as a Barnes & Noble Summer 2013 selection of the Discover Great New Writers program. The New York Times says the collection “illuminates racial and class tensions and the guilt of leaving home for the mainland.”
The Ko`olau Writers Workshop offers instruction and advice to writers of all levels. Held each spring, KWW features intensive workshop sessions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and scriptwriting. Kristiana Kahakauwila will give a keynote address and Q&A on the craft and practice of writing. Registration fee includes your choice of two workshop sessions (one in the morning and the other in the afternoon), as well as lunch, parking, and the keynote address.
Saturday, 12 April 2014 on the Hawai`i Loa Campus. REGISTER NOW!
