Just wanted to write you a brief note and let you know how outstanding the conference was this year (as usual!). Each of the classes I attended was excellent.

I am leaving so greatly encouraged and spiritually refreshed! I have laughed, cried, chuckled, and nodded my head in agreement with the speakers. I can’t wait to get started!

Thank you for doing such a fabulous job coordinating the Southern Christian Writers Conference. I am a retired Professional Meeting Planner so I am able to appreciate what all goes on behind the scenes. It was such a great, safe environment in which to learn. Overall, I can sum up my experience by saying this "see you at the next conference".

I know no other conference that compares with this one. It has been more than expected.

There are a lot of hungry and hurting people. Your ministry helps us reach those folks through the ministry of writing. You and your staff probably cannot know the impact the Lord is having in the lives of hundreds of attendees and those they reach. What the Gaithers are to Christian music, you are to the ministry of writing.
