Petals of Appreciation Campaign: Philadelphia Writers’ Conference

Set amidst a city rich with history, the 2015 Philadelphia Writers’ Conference made an impression that will last for years to come!

I walked through the hotel doors on Friday morning with my head held high, my laptop bag full of writing implements, and an open mind for developing my craft. When I left on Sunday afternoon, not only was my bag overflowing with resource materials, but my artistic spirit yearned to return to the keyboard, ready to write!

So much hard work goes into putting together a high-quality conference such as this. I will write a more thorough recap of my PWC 2015 experience, but in the meantime, I wanted to share my appreciation for all those who made this an experience that I won’t soon forget.

As such, here are just a few of the individuals who earned this week’s PETALS OF APPRECIATION: Lu Ann Cahn, Eileen D’Angelo, Don Lafferty, Autumn Konopka, and Carol Sabik-Jaffe. Please click on the referenced names to learn more about each of these knowledgeable and talented individuals.

Join the Petals of Appreciation Campaign:


Each week, from now until June 30th, 2015, send one Thank You letter {or card} to someone who made a positive impact on your life: family member, friend, mentor, teacher, police officer, social justice champion, musician, actor/actress, writer, author…the list goes on.

*Please use #PetalsOfAppreciation on social media to help keep the gratitude moving forward!*
