Since 2005, we have facilitated a FREE Wednesday Writing Workshop at the Arts at Marks Garage (1159 Nu'uanu Ave) in Honolulu's historic Chinatown. The workshop is from 4:30pm-6:00pm and attracts students from all over the island. This is the longest running writing workshop on the island of O'ahu. The workshop is a safe environment for writers and performers of all levels to develop their voice and their craft. Facilitated by a rotation of amazing local and international facilitators, these workshops encourage high-level critical conversations, push the aesthetic of spoken arts and form a strong youth literary community. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate.
