The Program

Kahini+ is Kahini’s online workshop series. On the first Tuesday and Saturday of each month, a different Kahini+ faculty member presents a new writing workshop. Workshops are available for individual registration, as well as registering for twelve workshops at a time.

Since our inception in 2014, Kahini participants have published over three thousand individual times in literary magazines, including such magazines as Granta and the New Yorker; released around three hundred books on significant presses, including Scribner and Little, Brown; been featured in the Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, Best American Short Stories, and Best American Science & Nature Writing anthologies; been short-listed for the Caine Prize for African Writing; received the New Zealand First Book Award; and won two Fulbright Scholarships; in addition to other awards and honors.

But our true measure of success is our focus on writing craft, writing community, and the ongoing inspiration of the writing life,
