Thanks to all who came to the Franklin Conference Center at the Howe Center in  Rutland for our Spring Program in April: All About Agents & Editors.

Our program with JONI COLE [THE WRITERS' CENTER], DAVID COREY [UPNE], and MICHAEL METIVIER [CHELSEA GREEN] was energetic, full of great information, and made all the better through the participation of a great group of writers!

Thanks so much for making the day such a success, and we'll see you all at our Writers Meet Agents event on July 19 at the Hampton Inn in Colchester!

Our biennial Writers Meet Agents event was held at the Hampton Inn Burlington on Lower Mountain View Drive in Colchester.  Accounting for the writers, presenters, exhibitors, agents, and our keynote speaker, we had ninety people on hand, and (as they say in such a cliche way ...), A Fine Time Was Had By All!
