SUMMARY: This 5-day “Writing Workshop & Retreat” is geared for educators, scholars, and advocates who seek to broaden and strengthen their toolkit for publishing on education and social justice in both academic and public venues. Participants will learn writing strategies from award-winning scholar Dr. Kevin Kumashiro, as well as his tips for writing for the media and publishing journal articles and books. Participants will have the option to receive individual mentoring on their writing goals, as well as to join a small-group discussion on short drafts of their writing.

LODGING OPTIONS: Workshop participants can choose to commute or to stay in one of several lodging options, including single/double/triple occupancy in the standard “Lodge” rooms with private bathroom, the “Lodge” rooms with shared bathroom, and the more upscale “Cottages” with private bathroom (please note that the Lodge rooms are immediately next to the Workshop meeting space, whereas the Cottages are about 5-10 minutes away by foot). The Workshop organizer will assign roommates if you select double/triple rates without identifying a roommate (in the “Additional Information” box in the Registration process, you can indicate the name of your preferred roommate).

REGISTRATION OPTIONS: Registration includes access to all Workshop sessions, including one optional individual mentoring session and one optional small-group session.

Extended stays must be arranged directly with the Kalani Registrar (not through Kevin Kumashiro Consulting) and after completing the Workshop registration process.

AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE: The nearest airport is Hilo International Airport (ITO), which is about 35 miles or 60 minutes by car. Kalani offers shuttle service from ITO as well as from the downtown Hilo bus station and hotels. Shuttle service is subject to availability; one-way pricing is $50 per person for shared rides and $75 per person for single bookings. (Alternatively: taxi service is available from ITO or Hilo Downtown for a one-way fare of approximately $125.) To make your reservation, please provide your flight details (including airline carrier and flight number) to Kalani Guest Services at 808-965-0468 or reservations@kalani.com. Airport shuttle service must be arranged directly with Kalani Guest Services (not through Kevin Kumashiro Consulting) a minimum of one week in advance of the Workshop.

WHAT TO BRING: The Workshop will be as “green” as possible, so no handouts should be expected. Participants should bring a laptop or writing supplies to take notes during the sessions as well as to work on their own writing when not in sessions. Please visit the Kalani website for more tips on what to bring and not to bring.

PAYMENTS: All registration payments (not including extended-stay or airport-shuttle payments) must be submitted via the Form below at the time of registration, and are non-refundable. Participants may arrive late or leave early, which does not change the registration fees.
