What participants
are saying...

"I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your book proposal workshop at FFW this Spring.  I was the one who said I might never write a book proposal but was just attending out of curiosity.  Guess what? Not only have I written a proposal but it was accepted and I have signed a contract.  My book on prayer will be released by Crossway in Spring 2016, Lord willing.
Thanks so much for your wonderful seminar. Not only was it clear and information-rich, your warm, encouraging presentation made it seem much less scary than I had imagined.  Without your session, I doubt I would ever have attempted it at all."

"I attended your Nonfiction Book Proposal workshop at the Festival of Faith and Writing. I greatly appreciated the information that you so freely dispensed. You examples were clear, and your points straightforward. Including participants, always a risky option, really helped drive home your points.

Most of all, I thank you for your wonderful spirit and enthusiasm."
