Kahini connects writers together across borders of all kinds through workshops, readings, and gatherings.
We can’t say it any better than a recent participant: “Kahini is the opposite of your typical rote workshop. Brilliant authors and editors work alongside writers who are just getting started, in an environment of empathy, frankness, encouragement, and artistic risk. The result is fresh new writing, fresh discussion, and a whole lot of fun.”
All Kahini experiences are designed to build cross-border relationships, mutual empathy, and mutual understanding, which spark new writing, new conversations, and new ways of being in the world.
2015 events happen in the cities of Chicago, Columbia, Kampala, Kigali, New Delhi, Olympia, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle, Tacoma, and Wellington.
