Hawaii Writers Guild Announces Hawaii Writers Showcase
The Hawaii Writers Guild has debuted a new series of videos on its YouTube channel. Hawaii Writers Showcase, which will present Writers Guild members reading their original work in informal settings, was conceived by Guild Events Director Johnson Kahili IV.
The first episode, filmed outdoors in Manuka Park near Milolii on Hawaii island, showcases Guild member Wendy Wilson reading her short story, “The Other Thing,” a spooky narrative about the abduction of a four-year-old girl by a dark creature of supernatural origin.
Wilson wrote the story for a Halloween-themed contest, but it was not her first venture into the world of the supernatural. Her first book, a vampire novel, emerged while Wilson was working full-time as a library technician in North Carolina. She has written two vampire novels and two fantasy books for middle graders.
After she retired in 2019, Wilson moved to Hawaii and joined the Hawaii Writers Guild. She is an active member of Readings and Responses, a Guild-sponsored writers’ support group.
Kahili plans to record two episodes of Hawaii Writers Showcase per month. The second episode, a poetry reading by Guild President Carol McMillan, has already been recorded and will be online soon. All episodes will be available to the public at no charge on the Guild’s YouTube channel.
