What members have to say

“The recognition of winning the CNFC writing contest has given me a measure of confidence. It has given me additional motivation to continue writing.”

Nancy O’Rourke

“The CNFC has given me a community of writers who focus on CNF. I didn’t have that until I attended a conference. And those conferences are the best!”

Bernadette Wagner

“All conference presenters were fabulous. I learned something new from everyone. Many lightbulbs. I leave much stronger and inspired, if not humbled, by the talent.”
