"I enthusiastically recommend The Toronto Screenwriting Conference to all serious writers. I was honored to speak at the first conference in 2010. This is a professional conclave. It is superbly run. You will have a wonderful time. You will network with colleagues familiar and new. You will learn and share your experience with other professionals. If you couldn't make it last year, don't miss it this year."
