Festival Testimonials

Loved the experiences in the ARTery, loved the presentations about the craft of writing and publishing. Gorgeous venues and well-done festival. Well-staffed, very nice venues. Will come again next year from Minnesota – well worth it.
...I loved seeing how the artist does her drawing because I want to be an artist when I'm older.
I especially like how easily accessible it is and the quality of the authors.
