Here is what people had to say about last year's conference:
I drove 400 miles to be here. It was well worth the trip. Meeting published authors, literary agents, and editors made the weekend what I was hoping for and needed.
The diverse panel for each session...gave a more realistic picture of how things are done and appealed to a variety of styles.
