Kauai Backstory will host its 2010 “Reading Series” featuring keynote writers and bestselling authors Jill Marie Landis, Stella Cameron, and Kristin Hannah on Monday, April 26, 2010 at the Kaua’i Community College Library from 5:00-6:45 p.m. The three authors will discuss their craft in a question and answer panel. After that, Kaua’i writers are invited to read from their own work. Writers will be allowed a maximum of five minutes to read, on a first-come basis until 6:45 p.m. Fiction, nonfiction and poetry welcome. Kauai Backstory will also announce the theme of the 2010 Creative Competition at this event.
This is not a workshop, a critique session or contest. You will not receive feedback. You will, however gain a startling new perspective on your writing as you read it aloud to others. Think about this as an “open mic” night for writers. And, of course, you do not need to read to attend. Your presence as a willing listener is greatly appreciated.
