Comments from Participants:


I was thrilled that some of the writers from the 2007 Festival were back, and we were able to deepen our sharing.

I have attended [other] conferences for writers. . . .  Although those gatherings attracted more writers and offered a greater choice of topics, the quality of presenters at the Luther conference was superior.  The speakers at this festival were articulate, encouraging, and knowledgeable.
