Where you sharpen your writing voice from the comfort of your home.

Each edition is sent out via email to Kahini registrants only on the fifth day of every month (Hawai’i Standard Time: UTC−10:00).

Kahini magazine contributor Jean Paul Seka with Kahini faculty member and magazine subscriber Rebecca Brown

Each month, registrants receive three new creative-writing craft lectures (and access to all archived lectures) by some of the best writers working today; as well as eleven inspirational writing exercises based on the lectures; a new interview with a vital, contemporary writer working in Africa, the Americas, Eurasia, and Oceania; and three new works of literary art in poetry, prose, or cross-genre work.

Magazine proceeds after paying our contributors help fund the work of Kahini’s partner organizations Literature Africa Foundation in Kenya and Writing Our World in Uganda.

These locally owned, locally governed, and locally staffed NGO organizations work with youth in schools and communities throughout East Africa, including Tanzania and Rwanda.
