“Aspiring authors who attended previous Showcase events, were ignited to take action on their literary dreams. Even publishing businesses have been launched,” conference host Jill-Capri Simms explained.  “For the past two years, the Showcase has been hosted in Atlanta, Tampa, West Palm Beach and Dallas,” Jill pointed out. “However, the requests to bring the Showcase back to Orlando, where we launched in 2014, have been steady. So I’m so very excited to be returning to Orlando this year.
Showcase attendees may also request and receive feedback on a sample of their literary work. There’s an added benefit to attend our Showcases; participants will not walk away empty-handed! Our keynotes will be providing their valuable information…in writing!”
