University of Hawai‘i at Manoa

Writing may be a lonely occupation, but you don’t always have to go it alone. Local author Rich Budnick (Hawai‘i’s Forgotten History, Hawaiian Street Names) presents his 12th annual Honolulu Writers’ Conference this month. Workshops include fiction writing, led by Steven Goldsberry (Maui the Demigod), non-fiction writing by Stuart Coleman (Eddie Would Go), children’s writing by Sandi Takayama (The Musubi Man), cookbook writing by Wanda Adams (food editor, The Honolulu Advertiser), writing for magazines by A. Kam Napier (HONOLULU Magazine editor) and more.

Writers will also have a chance to show their manuscripts to local literary agents and publishers. The conference is “an opportunity to become a more successful writer, so you can turn rejection notices into sales,” says Budnick.

Write on.
