"There's no such thing as an aspiring writer. If you're writing, you're a writer."

~Stephen Chbosky, author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, speaking at SBWC 2013

"You can't imagine what this conference meant to me. If it had not been for this conference, I'd probably still be sitting on a rerun of The Dating Game somewhere."

~Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, speaking at SBWC 2012
