Don’t wait because classes are filling up and some are sold out!
Master Class Dates: November 6th-9th
And it’s with special pleasure that we remind you that as part of the conference, on Saturday, November 11 | at 7:30pm in the Kau’i Ballroom at the Royal Sonesta Kaua’i Resort, there will also be a screening, open to the public, of the Official Selection of the 2022 Hawai’i Film Festival and Maui Film Festival 2022 Audience Award winner, The Story of Everything, a film written and performed by HI Poet Laureate Emeritus Kealoha and produced and directed by Engaging the Senses Foundation.
The Story of Everything is a multimedia film based on a theatre piece of the same title, which explores humanity’s rich and diverse explanations for the origins of life, presenting powerful solutions for the continued health of the planet at a time when we’re confronting the most severe crisis the earth has ever faced.
Never has there been a time, or place, where such a message means more, after this summer of flooding and fire across the globe and the tragic loss of property and life on the island of Maui.
A riveting performance that presses back against climate despair, The Story of Everything incorporates poetry, dance, music, art and special effects to condense 13.7 billion years into an hour and 45 minutes that asks and answers the question challenging humans from the very beginning: “Where do we come from?” And even more important: Where do we go next?

We look so forward to seeing you for a week of wonderful classes, presentations and performances at the 2023 Kauai Writers Conference!
