“As a fledgling author and first-time attendee, I was overwhelmed with all the useful information presented. The format Testimonials for the Nonfiction Writers Conferencewas convenient, the agenda was clear, and the speakers were all experts in their fields. This was well worth my time and money!
– Gwynnae Byrd Home Transitions,

I was blown away by the content in the NFWC 2012! It broadened my understanding and clarified numerous questions about writing, publishing and speaking in the non-fiction world. I am putting my new knowledge into practice already and finding growth in my social media platform along with more focused writing in general. Bonus: the online conference brought authors and speakers into my own home. Most cost effective!”
– Sharon R Hoover,

All writers, new and seasoned, should consider adding the Nonfiction Writer’s Conference to their “essential tool” list. After pen, paper, and a computer, add the “Nonfiction Writer’s Conference.” It was informative, fun, and translated into immediate practical tools.”
– Lucinda Porter, RN, author of Free from Hepatitis C,

“The 2012 Nonfiction Writer’s Conference, hosted by Stephanie Chandler, was an outstanding three-day event! Each presenter revealed an incredible amount of the latest information pertinent to nonfiction writers and authors. I now have a notebook filled with their professional handouts and a stack of notes I’m also using day by day. In addition, I received downloaded recordings of each presentation, to review at my leisure. What’s more, I’m using this information to move forward with my website — yes, it’s now in development — to attract just the right publisher for my manuscript. Thank you so much, Stephanie, and all those who made the NFWC such a success!”
– Mandy Berlin, author Death Is Not ‘The End’: One Agnostic’s Journey On the Bumpy Road to Belief,

THE BEST money I’ve spent on my book and writing EVER. (I talk about it here.)”
– Christine Stump, DIYoga and Yoga Basically come out as ebooks later this summer on

“The Nonfiction Writers’ Conference presented an incredible amount of information by experienced writers, publishers and agents. I was overwhelmed by the amount of in-depth information presented and will be listening to the recordings again and again. Even with that said, I came away with several new ideas and action steps that I could take immediately to begin building my platform, focusing my content and reaching more people.Thank you, Stephanie for taking the time and effort to organize such an inspiring and informative event.”
– Sandy Dempsey,

“I was overwhelmingly impressed by the information given during the Non-fiction Writer’s Conference. I feel as if I’ve learned all of the insider’s secrets to the trade. Every speaker was easily accessible and very willing and eager to answer questions. I would highly recommend this conference to anyone…whether you are a new writer or if you’ve been in the business for a while and are seeking a refresher course.”
– Jennifer Tardy, MBA/PHR, Your Healthy Relationship Activist,, twitter: @jtardy26, Author of His Ingredient Label: A Woman’s Guide to Recognizing a Junk Food Man

The conference is one of the best things I’ve done. Ever. I plan to use the processes and info to make a big difference in a high integrity way.”
– Allen Fahden, author Innovation on Demand,

“This educational conference covered almost everything in three days. The flexibility of listening now and to the recorded shows later makes sure attendees can maximize the information provided by experts. Stephanie did a wonderful job starting and finishing each session on time, which allowed me to do my “day job” at the same time. Having that much access to industry leaders was worth more than the price charged.
– Bob Quinlan, Author of Earn It: Empower Yourself for Love,
