The Windsor International Writers Conference was a great experience for me. It gave me access to agents, editors and authors. I learned more about writing fiction, screenplays and editing. I was able to network and make valuable connections. Thank you for hosting this event. I can’t wait for the next one. Thank you Pamela Goldstein!

The conference was great! It covered everything from ethics and activism to the nuts and bolts of grammar and publishing contracts. I’ll be back in 2016. Off the record, it was a pleasure to finally meet you. I have heard a lot about you in the community (all good) but our paths haven’t crossed before.

I found the Windsor International Writers’ Conference thoughtful, inspiring, and immensely valuable. The presenting authors offered fascinating and intelligent insights into their personal experiences and creative processes. Editors and agents provided helpful suggestions. Opportunities for individual conversations abounded, and I benefitted from talking with many interesting people. Novels, screenplays, short stories, poetry, humor writing, children’s
