South Florida Writers Association 7th Annual Mango Conference
I had the opportunity to attend the 7th SFWA Mango Conference for the first time. The event surpassed my expectations. It was a day fill with enrich activities for authors and members.
The morning began with great tips about the “Changes in the Publishing Climate” by author and speaker Dave Bricker.  Follow by the Keynote speaker Mitchell Kaplan, Books & Books founder. He shared a fascinated story of the beginning and future projects of Books & Books in Florida. Ended with a “Breakout Groups,” I shared with the poets and excellent guidance of Connie Goodman-Milone & Jonathan Rose.

The lunch and music time gave us energy to continue the afternoon with Speakers, Panelist and Closing Raffle. Great Job SFWA Board and volunteers!
