Find Out Why Our Attendees Love NFWC Events!

Not sure if an online event is for you? Check out feedback from past attendees:

“Informative and indispensable for aspiring and established authors alike. I highly recommend this conference and am looking forward to next year.”
-AK Turner, New York Times bestselling author of the Vagabonding with Kids series. www.VagabondingwithKids.com

“I attended the annual NFWC and was my first introduction to them. I have to say, I was blown away!! The content was incredible class after class. I couldn’t believe all of the value I gained… I’ve paid far more for far less! I signed up to be a member immediately so I can stay plugged into this awesome community.”
– Heather Dalton – Life Coach www.heathercdalton.com

I didn’t realize the value until I took this conference. I’m blown away by the content. It’s an extraordinary value. Thank you SO much, Stephanie.”
– Gail H.

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.

“Just over 6 months ago, while awaiting my proof from my publisher, I attended the Non-Fiction Writer’s Conference. I listened to all 15 hours and took lots of notes. I was left free of the characteristic overwhelm I used to feel when it comes to social media and self-promotion. I started out with a great, positive sense and a structured plan. NFWC got me over my social media allergy! After 12 years of toil, Psychology in the Light of the East came out on 30th January 2017. The internet is peppered with reviews, podcasts, interviews, a vlog series and more, and I am relaxed and aglow. The greatest proof is in the pudding… my book has consistently been in the top 20s and 30s in my genre on amazon.com for the entire week. Thank you for getting me ready and giving me confidence and structure to tackle the hurdle of book promo!  I look forward to next year’s conference and, yes, another book!
– Margot Borden, author, Psychology in the Light of the East (Rowman & Littlefield),  http://bit.ly/PsychologyintheLightoftheEastsoftcover

“The Non-Fiction Writers E-Conference is a wonderful event! I’ve attended many in-person writers conferences over the years at considerable expense. It was great to be able to be at home in my office and just participate in the sessions that most interested me — at a very reasonable cost!
– Doreen Pendgracs, Author of “Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolate,” http://chocolatour.net

This conference was GREAT! You provided tremendous value at an affordable cost. I couldn’t be more delighted. This was the information I needed, at this exact time in order to take my book to the next level. I’ve attended about a half-dozen $550 writing conferences in person–fortunately very close to my home so I could commute and save hotel costs. Hands down, yours was the best! Thank you.”
– Rob Oberto

“Thanks to the quality and variety of speakers, this is one of the most valuable conferences I’ve attended—online or off.
—Candace Johnson, freelance editor, http://changeitupediting.com

“As a writer, I found the conference to be incredibly informative and inspirational. It helped me look at the writing and publishing process in new ways.” – Cathy Wall

“This was my first time attending. I was blown away by how much information is packed into this conference. Keep it up!” – Anonymous

“Amazing! The conference was well organized and filled with 15 amazing, credible, industry experts. My time was well spent and I learned more than I ever imagined. Thank you!”
– Barbara C.

“I had my doubts about paying money for a virtual conference conducted entirely by telephone, but I’m glad I signed up. Captivating speakers, combined with intelligent questions from listeners and Twitter chatter during the sessions, made this a truly engaging conference.
– Julia Goldstein https://jlfgoldstein.com
