Award-winning local writer Cedric Yamanaka, author of Hawai‘i story collection In Good Company and many other short stories and screenplays, will speak at Hawai‘i Pacific University’s 12th Annual Ko‘olau Writing Workshops. The workshops will be held from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on March 14 in the Cooke Academic Center at the HPU windward Hawai‘i Loa Campus.
Yamanaka has received numerous awards for his work including the Helen Deutsch Fellowship for Creative Writing from Boston University, the Cades Award for Literature and was a former winner of the Honolulu Magazine Fiction Contest. The Farrington High School graduate is currently the host for Hawai‘i Public Radio’s Aloha Shorts, a program featuring Hawai‘i literature.
Local writers are invited to listen to a published writer speak, and to take workshops in drama, fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, to boost and inspire their own work. A free continental breakfast will be held from 8:45-9:15 a.m. From 9:15-9:30 a.m., HPU’s James Vaughn Poetry Contest winner will be awarded. Yamanaka will speak from 9:30-10:30 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. four different workshops will be available, with lunch following at 12:30 p.m. Participants must bring their own lunch, but complimentary drinks will be provided. The second round of workshops begin at 1:30 p.m., and at 3:00 p.m. the final meeting will be held for networking. Cost to attend the workshop is $20, or $10 for students with ID.
