Mt. Hermon was the first writer’s conference I ever went to and every year I get to go, it’s like going to my home away from home. The beautiful setting, the friendships, the classes, it feeds my writer’s soul and helps me grow in my craft.
You brainstorm, you connect, and you laugh. And missing it always feels like a huge loss. I’m so thankful to all those who take the time to make the camp such an enlightening and uplifting place.
Thank you, Mt. Hermon Writer’s staff for all you’ve done! I can’t say it enough.
