It’s not too late for bud­ding au­thors to reg­is­ter for this year’s Ko‘olau Writ­ers Work­shop — dead­line to sign up is March 17 for the March 21 sem­i­nar.

The 19th an­nual work­shop runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Hawaii Pa­cific Uni­ver­sity’s Hawaii Loa cam­pus. At­ten­dees will par­tic­i­pate in two work­shops

The Ko‘olau Writ­ers Work­shop is a great

lev­els.” op­por­tu­nity for writ­ers at all

in top­ics in­clud­ing fic­tion, po­etry, screen­writ­ing and cre­ative non­fic­tion.

“The Ko‘olau Writ­ers Work­shop is a great op­por­tu­nity for writ­ers at all lev­els,” stated HPU as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor and event or­ga­nizer Tyler McMa­hon. “I hope that the friend­ships and artis­tic con­nec­tions made by the at­ten­dees will be just as valu­able as the lessons they re­ceive.”

Lo­cal au­thor and poet Lois-Ann Ya­manaka is key­note speaker, and Ni­cholas Becher, re­cip­i­ent of this year’s James M. Vaughan Award for Po­etry, will read his win­ning poem, Crow. Becher also re­ceived $250 cash for tak­ing first in HPU’s long-run­ning po­etry con­test.
