"I will bask in the creative after glow of Wendy Goldman Rohm's book development courses for a long, long time. During my many years as a literary agent, I attended numerous writers conferences, but none of them came close to the extraordinary events for writers that Wendy presents. Wendy, who is a best-selling author, is also a respected literary agent. She has the gift of inspiring writers to expand their visions and hone their crafts, and of sensibly instructing them how the publishing world works. To be under the spell of Wendy's wise wand, and to be supportively surrounded by other writers who are working on their books or scripts, is to be richly nurtured in the imaginative realms of words, stories, plots, themes, beliefs, characters, time, place and narrative voice. I return to my own writer's desk enlightened, enriched and energized. I am blessed by new friendships with fellow writers and am filled with gratitude for the grand literary dame who brought us all together." --Phoebe Larmore, literary agent to Margaret Atwood , Tom Robbins, and more
