Do You Need Another Reason to Visit Paradise – Kauai Writers Conference

Aloha from the beautiful island of Kauai!

Hawaii and in particular the Garden Isle of Kauai are known for their inspirational qualities. I can attest to that. I moved to Kauai in 2013 following my heart as well as wanderlust. I chose a humble writing abode in Lihue to complete my inspirational memoir, When All Balls Drop: The Upside of Losing Everything. With such an emotional and personal topic, I needed moments away from my Macbook. Ok, I sometimes needed days away to clear my thoughts. I went straight for nature’s inspiration on the NaPali Coast and its hiking trails. Nature has a way of de-cluttering thoughts, which helped me polish my powerful story.

I released When All Balls Drop in September of 2014, which was highlighted in Looking Up, an article from the Garden Island newspaper. Since its launch, I have been writing a sequel, With New Eyes, from my Lihue home, but not without the needed breaks for inspiration. That is why I’m attending this year’s Kauai Writers Conference May 1-3. Although I’m a published author, there is always something to learn and finesse about our craft as writers.

You can learn more about the line-up of best-selling authors, editors, literary agents, and self-publishing pros that will be in attendance on the Kauai Writers Conference website as well as this brief video.

Do you need another reason to visit paradise?

If you do, let me give you not one, but two reasons:

1) Kauai is a spectacular destination for outdoors enthusiasts as well as creative spirits. There is no better place to write a book or plant the seeds of your next one. Check out my article on Kauai’s Best Kept Secrets.

2) The organizers of the conference are extending a FREE CRITIQUE with registration before March 15. Yes, you will be able to submit ten pages of your manuscript to one of two publishing industry pros: Literary Agent Elizabeth Kracht and/or Editor Silissa Kenney. To sign up for the conference and the free critique, email or call 808-639-4638. 

I’ll be looking for you at the Kauai Writers Conference. Give me a heads up that you are coming by connecting with me on Facebook and/or Twitter.
