Attracting major authors of both literary and popular fiction, non-fiction, screenplay and poetry, The Kaua‘i Writers Conference features writing and publishing workshops, one-on-one pitch sessions and manuscript critiques with influential literary agents. Whether you’re new to writing or have a book ready to publish, this event provides a rare opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s best while immersed in Kauai’s otherwordly beauty.
