REVIEWS

"The weekend ended as quickly as it began, and I hoped that I had gotten a card from every writer I had met and been inspired by while I was there. Through introspection, passion, setting goals (with some fear behind them), and reminding myself that I am the only one who can make my goals happen, I went home with some great resources and ready to write, making Story Expo a very successful weekend." - LA SCREENWRITER MAGAZINE

It was a place where connections were made, partnerships forged, and brands were launched." - THE STORY SOLUTION
