Topic: Kentucky Women Writers Group (Julie Wrinn)
The Kentucky Women Writers Conference is the longest running literary festival of women in the nation. Launched by the University of Kentucky in 1979, it is a premier destination for the celebration of women's arts and letters. The incredible caliber of writers and artists that we bring to Lexington each year would not be possible without the ability to pay them a fair fee, and that depends upon generous partnerships between the University of Kentucky and many key supporters.

Topic: Public Speaking with Lexington TOASTMASTERS (Theresa Richardson)
Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our membership is more than 332,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,400 clubs in 135 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
