This June, Wendy Nelles resigned as Co-Director of the Write! Canada conference.
Wendy attended her first conference (then known as God Uses Ink) in 1988, and was asked to become part of the conference committee. In 2001, after co-founding The Word Guild, she became co-director of the conference.
Wendy gave the following speech at the 2010 Write! Canada closing plenary after she was presented with an inscribed picture of some of the conference grounds. She received an extended standing ovation from the 200+ faculty and attendees who attended Write! Canada 2010.
