Excellent conference!  You guys are the best! …Thanks again for a wonderful job and a great, great conference. 


Thank you for everything! I couldn’t believe it was the first time you’ve done it all virtually because everything was so smooth. Excellent job all around. Couldn’t have been better!


I just wanted to thank everybody at Willamette Writers for another knockout conference. I’ve been going for 20+ years, and it’s always interesting, entertaining, and enlightening. Thanks especially to the folks who had to deal with Zoom’s… everything. I caught a bit of behind-the-scenes Zoom wrangling Sunday morning, and I’m very glad it was you folks dealing with that rather than me. Serious kudos for pulling off an entirely virtual conference. Eric Witchey is always a star, Hallie Ephron was perfect, Jennie Komp was brutally honest about contemporary Marketing, Larry Brooks always teaches me something, and I love seeing Philip Margolin run through his million drafts of an early first chapter…

As always, thank you all for putting on a classy, well run conference with excellent speakers!! It has definitely been worth my time!!

Thank you! The conference was a great experience, resonant with the warmth of community. Terrific speakers, master classes, and workshops! WW did a fantastic job of creating safe, inviting virtual spaces. Looking forward to upcoming offerings and future volunteering.
