Here's what students had to say about INW\A 2013:
"Hi Craig! I want to thank you so much again for helping me be part of INWA. It changed my life and gave writing back to me and took away the sense of isolation I had around writing. And I loved your workshop! I want to take as many classes with you as I can." -Sonia Waleyla
"Thanks for helping make INWA happen. I hope the week turned out to be everything you wished it would be. For me, there was definitely no false advertising – it was very intense, involving, and immersive." -Kenneth MacLellan
"Thank you for a wonderful six days, INW\A. The conference was inspiring. It was well run, educational, fun, and simply a class act. I hope you do it again next year!" - Priscilla Oppenheimer
"I feel like I learned a lot and really would like to attend again, perhaps year after year! I enjoyed your music at Club 66 as well; having some casual events was a great idea." - Haley May
"Thanks for a great week, I learned a lot. I mean, I finally "finished" a story. It was the boost I needed." - Christian Chesterman
