Praise for the Winter Writers’ Weekend

The Winter Writers’ Weekend was full of helpful, practical advice for writers wanting to market their books. I found it enormously energizing to spend a weekend learning from other writers and people in the trade. …. I definitely recommend the weekend for authors who want to learn how to reach a wider audience.

“I did love it and am very glad I came. It felt very nurturing as well as exciting—good combo!”.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful conference this past weekend. I was happy for the opportunity to attend and even more pleased as this past Friday and Saturday unfolded and I soaked up the valuable information your speakers had to offer.
The event was first class. Not only were the speakers amazing, but the beautiful facility, the snacks, the constantly replenished water, soda and ice, the selection of restaurants in Lambertville, the well organized flow of speakers in both rooms – all of it combined to make a truly memorable occasion. You are to be commended for your attention to detail and your obvious love for every aspect of publishing and for the authors you represent.
Thanks again. It was such a pleasure to meet you and I hope our paths cross in the future.
-Nancy Labs (2016)

The Winter Writers Weekend was a very positive experience for me and I want to thank you each and everyone for your part in making it making it happen. Of course, I want to thank Karen for creating the event and creating the space for it to happen. Of course, I want to thank Barbara for all her Goddess work behind the scenes and for the presence of her energy throughout the weekend. And of course, I want to thank all of the presenters of the sessions I attended.
