Talk of the Conference
Many great things were said about the conference. Here are just a few comments.
"Enjoyed Robin Greene's Wet Ink session, with its meditative opening, and the 10-word-down-to-1-word exercise will prove useful to get the creative juices flowing. Dasan Ahanu's discussion of speaking/reading poetry really made me think about spoken presentation. Richard Krawiec's session that centered on the *appearance* of books/journals made me think about that more than I had before."
"I enjoyed the Poetry Slam, but I do not aspire to become a poet. The most informative session for me was given by Nikki Terpilowski about what she looked for in a manuscript."
"I was inspired by the people who are passionate about writing and learned from those who are experienced teachers. I was impressed by the talent of many of the participants. Overall, I felt comfortable and think the event came off nicely."
