your manuscript…in paradise

This is a guest post by Jordan Hartt.

I’m excited that poet Erin Belieu will be teaching with Priscilla Long and myself at the just-announced 2016-2017 Kona Manuscript Seminars in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.

The program is designed to be analogous to just the thesis part of an MFA program: the goal is that by the end of nine months, each writer will have taken their manuscript as far as it will go.

The full overview of the program is here: www.kahini.org/kona.

The Kona Manuscript Seminars are being presented by Kahini, a group of inter-connected global programs whose other workshops include the Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat and other year-round gatherings in New Zealand; the Kampala Writers’ Conference and other year-round gatherings in Uganda; and the Kaua’i Writers’ Retreat.

Jordan Hartt Jordan Hartt is a reader, writer, writing teacher, and community & events organizer. Creative work has appeared in many literary magazines and journals: a collection of rainy, watery narrative poems, “Leap,” appeared in 2015. He directly facilitates five annual writing retreats, serving just over two thousand writers per year.
