"EVERYONE was so open. I sat with different people at every meal/presentation and
learned so much. Great dialogue everywhere you went. Truly worth every penny!" "It was a wonderful opportunity to learn the latest tools of the trade and to meet so
many people that are passionate about nonfiction."
"I so enjoyed meeting and sharing ideas with my fellow NF Writers and also
appreciated how open and friendly the faculty were. I witnessed editors and writers
sharing leads and offering to connect new writers with established professionals to
help them out. It made me proud to be part of this community."
"I've never felt so connected at a writer's conference before - being immersed with
so many like-minded people sharing ideas, lots of laughs and even gripes. I can't wait for next year."
