Janis Jaquith's keynote speech was such a hit at the Roanoke Regional Writers Conference last week that she has recorded it and put it on line so you can listen. It is here.
If you'd rather spend a little time with the written speech, you can find it here.
It is a marvelous speech from one of the region's finest writers. Janis, as always, is fall-down funny, but there is a depth and breadth to the speech that writers will especially appreciate. Take a few minutes and listen. It's worth your time.
