Thank you Cathy and Kristan for instilling in us that we are capable, normal, and now, empowered by sharing the depths of your experiences.

Just watched Kristin's speech and I'm so touched by what she shared. Through both laughter and tears she brought us into her world and I just wanted to say thank-you for that. I agree completely with the importance of reading and our jobs as writers, well I hope it'll be my job :), that we provide the escape for those that need it and those that want it. I hope one day to get the opportunity to meet her and tell her personally how much this speech affected me.

Thank you for posting these!

I was there in person and I'm so happy my fellow RWA chapter members will get a chance to view these now.

2012 speeches

These were absolutely, no doubt, the two most inspiring speeches I've ever heard in my life. Cathy Maxwell did what EVERY RWA Keynote should do-energize you for the confernece, celebrate our group of like minded women, and encourage all of us not to let that little voice of doubt rule. And Higgins..? Can't even say all the reasons this was awesome.
