"Write-to-Publish is a well-organized, mind-challenging, content-stuffed conference. Nowhere else am I stretched as a writer nor have so many God-divined moments. I would not be where I am today as a writer without the encouragement and challenges I experience at Write-to-Publish and through the people God puts in my path while there."
—Ronnell Kay Gibson

"This was a fantastic experience, which opened new worlds to me that I didn't know existed before this."
