Hawai'i Writer's Alliance

Welcome to the enchanting world of Hawaiian literature, where the gentle trade winds whisper secrets, and the warm, golden sands cradle stories waiting to be told. As the rest of the world dons its autumnal attire, Hawaii dances to a different tune in November. In this tropical paradise, where the sun-soaked islands remain forever in the embrace of the Pacific Ocean, November brings forth a unique tapestry of experiences, traditions, and natural wonders. From the fiery splendor of volcanic eruptions to the serenity of rain-soaked landscapes, from the gratitude-filled celebrations of Thanksgiving to the harmonious notes of Hawaiian music, our pens stand poised to capture the essence of November in Hawaii. Join us on this literary journey as we explore the vibrant and diverse tapestry of life in the Aloha State during this captivating month.
