What Writers Have to Say About This Not-To-Be-Missed Event

Being in such a creatively charged environment as the TMCC Writers' Conference is always encouraging and inspiring to me. And I always learn something new and useful about successful writing and publishing techniques.

I felt as though I'd somehow cheated TMCC—I got so much more out of this conference than I ever expected when I paid the fees. Honestly, I've had semester-long college courses that did not leave me with this much information and this many fabulous tips for success. As a published writer already, I'm blown away by how much this conference had to offer. Absolutely worth every penny.

I was skeptical that I would learn much from a one-day conference, but there is always something to learn when you get together with other writers who are all at different stages in their writing journey. The mix of speakers offered a little bit of everything. While I was already familiar with some of what was presented, there was just as much that was new. Lots of "ah ha" moments...All in all, a valuable experience.
