Returned yesterday from StokerCon 2019 in Grand Rapids.
My wife’s and my second time at the Con. Wow, what an amazing experience. Last year was great and everyone was so wonderful and inclusive.
But this year I felt even more a part of the HWA family. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, kind, and supportive. I never felt unwelcome. I’m so glad I joined the HWA, it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Congrats again to all the Stoker winners. I’m thankful for all the friends I got to hang out with and all the new people I got to meet, the amazing panels, and all the support everyone gave.
