Travel Classics Conferences
"There are no words to describe how wonderful you and your conference are . . .I can't imagine any other professional meeting that gives its participants so much of such great value."
- Ann Cochran
". . .just wanted to write and tell you what a wonderful time I had at the conference. While I was dubious at first, I came away totally charged up (if not particuarly optimistic about the market) and ready to write."
- Alan Wechsler
"As good as last year was for me, overall, I think this year is going to make last look like nothing. I simply cannot thank you enough. You have changed my life in a huge and glorious fashion . . . ."
- Ed Readicker-Henderson
". . .wanted to take a minute to thank you for a wonderful weekend. I made some valueable contacts and some new friends. I look forward to future Travel Classics Conferences with everyone."
- Barbara Wysock
"Thanks for organizing such a wonderful conference. I go to other conferences but as a travel writer this is the only one that really serves me."
- Elaine Glusac
"Just wanted to let you know that everyone on the (participants) list so far is rhapsodic about this year's conference. It's a lovefest for you and the editors and each other."
- Judith Kirkwood
"That was such a wonderful weekend you gave us all: productive (several editors
seemed interested in my ideas), but most of all the three days were filled with such a warm spirit . . .it was so nice to meet other writers who are trying to do what I am, and to find them so encouraging. I had never been to such an event and you can count on my returning. Thank you so much for including me."
- Carola Lott
"Just a quick note to thank you again for inviting me to Troutbeck this year. It was a pleasure to be there, to meet you, the other editors and the many talented writers who participated. I will likely get a number of good articles as a result of the conference. Beyond that,
there was a warmth and friendliness among the participants that was great to see. Marie and I felt immediately welcome and comfortable. So again, thanks for your graciousness, and for taking such good care of us. I would be honored to participate in future conferences."
- Bruce Friedland, Travel Editor, Baltimore Sun
"Maren -- I must say that I've never felt so welcome than at your conference. It was beyond terrific for some very specific reasons: your attendees are real writers; the setting is inspiring; the teachers are fun to talk to . . .well done. I would be honored to attend the Western version of your conference . . .I now understand why my staff loves your conference."
- Keith Bellows, Editor-in-Chief, National Geographic Traveler
