Friday, May 23rd – From HPR2, it’s The Conversation
The high cost of energy in Hawaii has almost become cliché, yet those monthly bills keep coming. For nonprofits, escalating utility expenses can often mean not money enough left over to make changes to lighting fixtures and other power suckers. Now Blue Planet has an idea that could help nonprofits. The Foundation is piloting a program with three of them, including Hawaii Public Radio. It’s a novel approach with social media at its center. David Aquino from Blue Planet joined the show to discuss the program.

At some point in the writer’s life, you have to get off the page. That means finding an audience, and finding a way to reach it. It’s one reason more and more writers are getting the benefits of writers’ conferences. Those events give them perspectives they could never give themselves. How does your work really look to an agent or a seasoned book editor? What are some tips that have helped others in the same situation? The Kauai Writers Conference is happening this weekend. The non-profit writers group, Write-On Kauai, is the sponsor. David Rosenberg is the organizer, and he joined us this morning.
