“I had the great pleasure to bring my comedy writing workshop to the San Miguel Writers’ Conference and it was a wonderful experience. The conference co-ordinators and staff worked very hard to ensure that the conference was well planed, well organized and brilliantly executed. They are also a very warm and welcoming group of people, all of whom, I am glad so say are now my friends. The conference participants were also a welcome surprise. The participants I met had a great deal of writing experience, asking intelligent and challenging questions and exhibiting a high degree of knowledge. This allowed me to move the workshop faster and delve deeper than I had expected. It sure kept me on my toes. I highly recommend this conference as a wonderful atmosphere in which to explore and grow for students and teachers alike.
Plus it’s held in paradise! So GO, already!” — Scotty Watson, Head of NYC Faculty, Artistic New Directions’ Improvised Theatre Workshops & Advanced Sketch Writing Teacher, The Second City NYC
