Area 7s First Mini Conference A Success

Runway bannerOn March 28, 2015 Area 7 hosted its first mini conference at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, Virginia. Titled Writers Project Runway – Fashioning Your Story. The full day conference was offered to serve Pennwriters in the Metropolitan Washington D.C. area and to increase awareness of Pennwriters within the community. I’m happy to say it seemed to have done both and we have a few new Pennwriters as a result. Credit for that goes to the speakers and the workshops they presented. My wonderful planning team (indicated by a *) and I are already thinking about next year’s event.

I also want to thank Mike Carducci** who worked tirelessly throughout the planning and the event itself in support of Writers Project Runway – Fashioning Your Story. He carried books, made coffee, worked with the event location staff to overcome a lot of IT problems and so much more.
