It was a perfectly organized event without a minute wasted! Thank you for the opportunity to learn from such talented individuals!

-Stephanie Fitzpatrick

The only downside to the event is that it's not held TWICE a year. *smile* Thanks for all of the effort that was put into coordinating the event. It was great to be able to stay at home with the family and avoid the hassles of traveling.

-Lance Tofsrud

I could fill this whole page with kudos and compliments. Presenters and panels were brilliant. I've taken lots of writing classes and attended dozens of webinars...but I learned a ton of stuff that I will be able to apply to my writing immediately. I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
