In the tradition of literary journals and salons everywhere, kauaibackstory.com supports good writing and healthy discussions. All submissions are reviewed by a three-person editorial board made up of Kim Steutermann Rogers, Gae Rusk and Lois Ann Ell. We value the expression of all voices and delight in words (and images) that shift thinking and open minds threading us ever closer together in this calabash of a world in which we live.
Kauaibackstory.com wishes to honor the circle of fearless writers from the 2006 Hanalei Writers Retreat for spinning the thoughts and stringing the images that wove kauaibackstory.com into shape. Great gratitude also goes to the brave Terry Tempest Williams who also reveres language and landscape and who introduced us to rigor and inspired us with these words, “To be a powerful writer is to be a human being engaged in the world.”
And, so, this is how we engage.
