The Desert Writing Retreat is where it all began, in 2014. Since its inception, Kahini’s Desert Writers’ Retreat has (so far) produces each year more published work than any of our other retreats, workshops, or gatherings.
Maybe it’s the week-long immersion in storytelling. Maybe it’s the intensity of the short-short story/prose poem form. Maybe it’s the beautiful and inspiring desert environment, or the distant pulse and energy of Las Vegas. Every year we see high-level drafts written here, final drafts of which have appeared in magazines, won awards, and headlined collections of the authors’ works.
