Margie Lawson...

...is awesome.

Margie was the sole presenter at the writing conference I attended this past Saturday. She's funny, gracious, generous...and so many other things.

I wish we could have a longer session as we only hit the tip of the mountain of what she could have taught us. Some of which included some deep EDITing techniques, use of rhetorical devices, power words, and back-loading our sentences.

It was pretty much unanimous that we went her back again. Or that individually, we will participate in some of her online classes or purchase her lecture packets which are several hundred pages long each.

A great weekend with a fabulous speaker, a fun and smooth-run event, and good time with fellow writers, some old friends and some brand new.

It was so great to see you there, Jen. Even though I'd taken her online course, I still got so much out of it.

I'd love to have her come again. And I may try one of her online courses next year.
