Description

Brought to you by the UH Mānoa Department of English Creative Writing Program and Hawai'i Review:

Join us for a day of creative writing sessions at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Campus Center. We will offer nine sessions, as well as lunch, a book fair, and a keynote address by poet Christy Passion. This year, as part of a fundraising campaign for the Hawai'i Review, we are asking for a pre-registration fee of $15 for community members and $5 for university students. Attendees to pre-register will receive a free copy of The Hawai'i Review. (See payment information below)

This year, we are especially encouraging young adults to join us and see that taking words seriously can be fun! Thanks to a special sponsorship from the Creative Writing Program, young writers 17 and under are invited to join the Youth Sessions at no charge.

The sessions will create a generative writing space for old hands and novices alike. Coffee, refreshments, and lunch will be provided to all registrants, and the book fair will feature the work of some your favorite local writers and artists. A detailed schedule will be released to registrants no less than a week prior to the conference. Here is our lineup:
