Aloha Writers Group Accepting New Members!

The Aloha Writers Group began in Kailua, Hawaii, in 2017, but now has members in Minneapolis and LA as well. We meet on Zoom every other week from 5:00 PM CST (6:00 PM in Daylight Savings Time) for about two hours, depending on the length of discussions. We are a small group, with 3-4 members submitting work for feedback every other session. We keep the tone positive and encouraging, while providing honest and thorough analysis. Depending on the stage of your writing project (new rough material vs polished draft), we can gauge feedback accordingly.

Group members include published authors, as well as new writers. No matter where you are on your writing journey, the main thing we expect is dedication. We accept fiction (flash, short, novels), creative non-fiction (memoir or short), as well as plays and screenplays.

If you are interested in meeting the group, please email Amanda at with a brief self-introduction along with a description of your current project, and a short (no more than 10 pages double-spaced) writing sample. Space is limited, so we will not be able to accept all applicants.

Mahalo! We look forward to writing with you!
