Live and write among the cactus, mountains, and sunsets of the Mojave Desert, near the pulse and energy of Las Vegas. Open to writers across all genres, the Desert Writers’ Retreat is where Kahini first began, in 2014, and is a gentle blend of community writing time, personal writing time, and the option to visit and write with other residents, set amidst the beauty and tranquility of the Mojave Desert and Las Vegas.
Each of Kahini’s eight week-long writing retreats are built around the same idea: that good writing happens when you combine craft-focused writing sessions with private editorial sessions–and put it all in a beautiful, inspirational environment for writers.
