TESTIMONIALS

“I’m the writer I am today thanks to WriterCon. I started attending in 2016 and because of WriterCon and the Cruise, I am now a best-selling, award-winning author with six published books and more on the horizon. WriterCon is my one “must-attend” conference and has a standing place on my calendar each year.”
 
Betsey Kulakowski
Author of the Best-selling Veritas Codex Series

“Participating in the 2023 cruise and Summer retreat are some of the best things I have ever done for my writing. The practical, action-oriented sessions helped me boost my page production and editing, too. I’ve attended many conferences over the years, and was surprised that I learned so much. Everyone was super-helpful, and interested only in helping all writers do their best work.”

“I’ve been on the WriterCon cruise twice now and it’s been a blast.  Great sessions with experts in publishing, editing, and writing, and fellow writers who share what they know, too.  All on the sunny Caribbean.”
