I realize looking over my notes all the information that I took away from the event but my biggest take-away came from the life-long friends that I made. I would absolutely attend again next year.

I really am so very pleased to have been a part of this. I think women left more enlightened, more empowered and more sure of themselves and their futures. Who could ask for more.

I like when a presenter can just go with the flow if a conversation on topic occurs, as Suzanne Braun Levine did graciously. I also like that most presenters can put themselves into their presentations genuinely, like Linnea Duvall who was able to draw us in. We lived it with her.

I LOVED this retreat. The sharing was intimate and honest and I felt great warmth and friendship from the women who attended. I also loved the honesty and openness of the speakers who, though highly accomplished, shared their vulnerabilities and concerns.

Lisa Levart said in her workshop, “Let the photographer see you.” I think we all let everyone see us that weekend, and it was amazing.

I met some of the most brilliant and loving women at WAW. We’ve kept in touch, inspired, supported and loved each other ever since.

Women at Woodstock is more than an event, it’s a treasure. It’s powerful and empowering to be with women who love, want, share, think, do, care, motivate, inspire, hug, cry, write, read, and most importantly BE with and for each other. It’s worth being part of.

I’m not big on groups. And I’m terrible at small talk. But I LOVED spending a weekend with WAW, which felt honest and warm. I made some wonderful new friends and learned how to step up my social media game and take steps toward getting my pilot greenlighted. And bravely!

I look at WAW as a group of wise women, women who have left behind the BS of false female competition. Instead we have learned to embrace each other by lifting each other up.

Read Ann Voorhees Baker's story
"Ann is a true professional. She went above and beyond all my expectations when ghost-writing my book. She listened carefully and then expanded on my words and experiences with thorough attention to detail. Her writing added tremendous value to my project. She was incredibly supportive. She also accommodated the speed at which we needed to produce the manuscript and helped me meet all of my publisher's deadlines. I always felt as if she genuinely cared about me as her client and she has an obvious passion for her work. I would not hesitate to recommend her."
