From our Meetup site, a message from Dave Rosenberg of Hawaii:

Aloha! I’m one of the organizers of writer’s group on Kauai. I’m writing to tell you about the Kauai Writers Conference coming up this May 1-3, 2015. The conference focuses on fiction and memoir, with a great panel of presenters including bestselling authors, editors, and agents. We also plan to offer a self-publishing track. Unlike many other conferences, we limit attendance to just 150 to keep it intimate, so that attendees can easily mix with presenters and each other. (It also doesn’t hurt that the conference takes place on one of the most beautiful places on the planet.) We’d be most grateful if you’d help us to spread the word. We’re entirely volunteer run, trying to publicize the conference while working at our jobs, and we have limited marketing resources, so hope you don’t mind us reaching out to you in this way. Please call with any questions. We can provide a discount to groups of four or more. Contact me directly for details. Our website is http://www.kauaiwritersconference.com.
