UH Hilo's premier art and literary magazine

Campus Center room 215

Who we are

Kanilehua is UH Hilo's student operated literary art magazine. We publish creative fiction, non-fiction, poetry, visual, and multi-media arts to showcase the talent of UH Hilo students. We strive to promote the positive voice of creative arts in the community. We believe strongly that art is inspirational in all forms, whether it is messy or raw, real, and in-your-face, it is possible to change the world through art.
