Editorial Freelancers Association Conference

What others say about Tia
I have had the pleasure of attending several writing conferences organized by Tia, and each and every time I came away with invaluable information and contacts. I had my first pitch to agents and I learned about the business of publishing while forming industry contacts that will last a lifetime. The topics, instructors, environment inspired me to finish my very first novel and go on to write more.
Any success that I’ve had as a writer/editor can be traced back to my first experience with Tia Ross. When I attended one of her conferences in Atlanta in 2000, it jump-started my writing career, and not just because of the inspiration, motivation, skills development and professional guidance it provided (and there was plenty of all of that)! The services Tia offers are so impeccably planned, well-organized and superbly executed, they set a standard of quality and excellence that I still aspire to – not only in my writing process, but also in my entrepreneurial endeavors and my life in general.
I always look forward to attending events given by the phenomenal Tia Ross! Tia’s choices of venues are nothing short of spectacular. Tia’s events have been very affordable and far exceed the price of investments I have made in myself. In addition to the wealth of information I received at her conferences, the beautiful hotels made me feel like a celebrity for the time I was there. Everyone is treated like family.
When you attend a Tia Ross event, you can truly say, “we are family.” Because that’s what you will become by the time you leave. I am looking forward to my next luxurious adventure.
Having attended a number of events managed by Tia Ross, I’ve learned that she is a master at pulling together the components of a successful event and program. Her events are enlightening, engaging and fun! I am impressed by the way the events are organized and executed to meet the expectations of those in attendance. This includes the choice of venue, quality of speakers, agenda, and the attention to detail that her staff provides, and I’m looking forward to attending her future events.
I have attended several events organized by Tia Ross, and each has made an impact on my writing journey. Her events are always well-organized and well-staffed with special considerations given to the workshops, panelists and functions. Close attention is paid to the details. Current trends, industry knowledge of speakers and networking opportunities are all incorporated. Every event has been well attended, from newbies to publishers and film producers. I’ve met a number of people at Tia’s events and established lifelong relationships because a supportive community is formed from attendance and you can’t put a price on that! My writing journey has definitely been enriched from attending her events and my professional writing career began as a result.
I thought about this for a minute and if I were to boil down my experience at writing functions run by Tia Ross to one word – beside “quality” – that word would have to be “efficient.” I’m a HUGE believer in not having my time wasted, so having been to other conferences previously with events scheduled to start at 9AM that didn’t begin until 9:35, making you late to another event you wanted to attend, I was very appreciative that that wasn’t the case at her events. Couple that with the programs themselves that were well run, of interest and chock full of helpful information, I can say it was a great return on my investment. I left feeling well-equipped to taking my writing to the next level as attendees are given plenty of information and resources. Now what you do with all that is on you, but you certainly walk away with the tools to make it happen!
