This was my first time attending a BWRC conference and I really did not know what to expect. Let me just say I was simply blown away. To say it exceeded my expectations would not even begin to describe the experience for me. Spending two days among talented, intelligent, articulate women and men was in and of itself a delight. To have those individuals be Black and writers, well, it just does not get any better than that. Not only were all of the presenters encouraging and inspirational, they were without exception generous with their time and gave sound and practical advice. I believe I have made connections that will last a lifetime and I know the advice garnered will certainly add to my success as a writer. Thank you again for a job well done. Your efforts have touched so many lives. What a grand legacy to leave and what a fine example you and your team are for others.
