"Dawn Brotherton’s Generating Writing Ideas presentation not only engaged and captivated my students and me, but also provided accessible and useful tips for what many describe as the most difficult part of the writing process: sparking ideas. Moreover, Dawn revealed the breadth and depth of her expertise by sharing her observations about becoming an author, her personal writing process, and her experiences with editing and publishing books. For this reason, this engagement would appeal to the greenest of writers as well as the most seasoned authors. Thanks, Dawn, for the wonderful experience!"
