I had such a wonderful time at the conference thanks to your stellar planning and beautiful spirit. You put on a great event and I am going to make it the one writing conference that I promote throughout the year. I can honestly say that it is the best that I have been to so far (better than some heavy hitters) for attendees as well as presenters. Thank you again for having me.

Teri Bayus was recently engaged by the Community Foundation of Estero Bay to provide its Board with a social media for non-profits seminar. The seminar was professional, instructive, useful, and engaging. The Board is grateful to Teri for informing it about the nature of various current social media platforms, and their potential application for the benefit of a non-profit. Thank you Teri!

Teri -

If you are tired of hearing this, forgive me. But you have once again done very well for yourself and writers. It was a wonderful conference. And in no small part it was due to you and your coterie of volunteers who, I might add, adore you. Add me to your long list of fans. You did spanked as many home runs for your participants as you did your staff and faculty. If you can't hear the applause coming from my Tarzana office I'm not clapping hard enough.

Thanks again, oh Mistress of the Writer Realm,
