"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest
accomplishment." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The Story Summit has been like the chicken noodle soup for a creative heart. Every single mentor was a chef for this delightful soup, throwing in ingredients like comfort, spice, knowledge, passion, humor, tough love, big hugs, camaraderie, and so much more. All held in the bottomless bowl of David’s generosity, which holds it all together. All of it strengthening us against the doubt that attacks the writer’s immune system. Downright medicinal.”
