This past weekend I hosted a writing conference featuring New York Times best selling author Jennifer Lauck. The fabulous author of the memoir Blackbird and three other amazing books. The women who attending Jennifer’s three day intensive workshop may have been exhausted after these three days, but they walked away with so much.
I first met Jennifer when she was our keynote speaker at the Second Annual Women Inspiring Women Conference last January. She wowed the audience and the friendship that has developed is one that I cherish.
I love Jennifer like a sister and I am grateful for the working relationship we both enjoy with each other.
On Friday night another incredible force to be reckoned with, Maggie Downs joined us for dinner. Maggie is in the MFA program at UCR and will be writing one incredibly fabulous book in the near future. Being surrounded by these two (tall) and incredibly talented creative women was so much fun.
Listening to their stories and sharing a bottle (or two) of wine was a beautiful way to spend an evening in Palm Springs.
If you missed out on Jennifer’s workshop, no worries as she will be presenting more amazing classes next April.
