Recapping The 2017 Jamaica Writers’ Retreat!

threepeoplesMarch 19-25, 2017–a week of intensive writing around the theme of water, of great community developed–especially around the kitchen!–and the sun setting over the Caribbean.

We came together from all over the Americas to explore how water shapes our lives in manycaribbean different ways, reading the work of such artists as Derek Walcott, Kwame Dawes, Hone Tuwhare, Katherine Mansfield, Kim Chinquee, and Edward Baugh, and finding new inspiration into our own writing.

We wrote poetry, we wrote fiction, we wrote nonfiction, we wrote cross-genre. We had the time of our lives through both community and individual writing retreat time.

peoplesWe’ll be doing this again in 2018!

Next Kahini event in the Americas: the 2017 Hawai’i Writers’ Retreat, which happens December 10-16.
