“I was eagerly anticipating the Spring NFWC this year and it didn’t disappoint. The lineup of speakers was impressive but the sheer amount of practical, insider strategies and suggestions made the price of entry a steal! Can’t wait for the Fall conference!”
– Susan J Mecca, PhD, author of The Gift of Crisis: Finding your best self in the worst of times. drsusanmecca.com

The Nonfiction Writers Conference was worth every penny. The caliber and qualifications of the speakers was excellent, and I gained a lot of valuable information that I can use right now. I love that the sessions are recorded. This conference is a definite recommend! Thank you Stephanie Chandler for organizing a valuable event.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the 8th annual Nonfiction Writers Conference. It exceeded my expectations. The sessions covered so much valuable information. I especially appreciated the Ask-A-Pro sessions. Before this I didn’t realize how badly I needed a conference like this one. Now I know what I’ve been missing. Thank you!”
– Lucy Brummett

NFWC is the best investment I make each year in my nonfiction author career. The caliber and accessibility of the presenters is unusually high, the topics well chosen and diverse, and I can honestly say that at least half of the presentations would have been worth the cost of the whole conference alone.”
– Mary Shafer, Devastation on the Delaware, 55Flood.com

“Where else can you gain so much valuable information in so little time? I’ve attended Non-Fiction Writers Conference three years running and it has been well worth my time every year.
– Karyn J. Taylor, Editor: TWO STEPS FROM GLORY: A World War II Liaison Pilot Confronts Jim Crow and the Enemy in the South Pacific by Maj. Welton I. Taylor, Ph.D.
