The WIP Summit was amazing! I didn’t want it to end.

Fabulous!  (I probably shouldn't say this out loud, but based on what I've seen so far, and what I know is coming, I would have easily paid double!) 😁

Just signed up for this summit and I'm very excited! I've taken Alexa Bigwarfe's Publishing and Marketing conference and it was truly AMAZING. I learned so much…made terrific connections…worth every penny. I'm sure this will be, too!

Such an amazing conference. So impressed with the content. By far the most comprehensive collection for a writing/publishing conference. Great job!

Just want you to know that this was the most beneficial, wonderful conference I have ever been to. It was dynamite. And you are just so lovely and friendly. I feel as if we've been friends for years! Thanks.

Women In Publishing Mission & Vision

We celebrate the accomplishments of women in publishing – authors, publishers, editors, typesetters, cover designers, marketers, booksellers, everyone involved in creating and selling books and provide a community where we can share great resources, encouragement, tools, and mentorship for women who want to have their voices heard and stories told.

What others have to say…

Directly because of Women in Publishing, because of you, Alexa Bigwarfe, I met a publisher and in less than two weeks my novel was accepted. I am so very grateful for the WIP conference. 



Thank you for this phenomenal opportunity. You have put together a Magnificent program and one of the Best Leadership and Success oriented informational trainings I have ever attended. I did purchase the package so that I can go back and re-listen to these presentations as I travel on this path of Writing and Authorship. Your courses are a big help to not have to “re-invent the wheel” so to speak. I am 71 years young and Time is a commodity I cannot waste. My writings will be my legacy to my Family. Again I thank you for your Professionalism of reaching out to help Women be All they Can Be.

The WIP Summit is blowing my mind!!! Thank you so much!

Nichole Heinrich


Thank you. Thank you for interviewing all these women, compiling all these resources and best of all, giving it away simply for the sake of helping other women — in your own words — ditch the fear and just write. I'm not sure how many other 18 yr old girls are watching the videos in this summit, but I have to say they have provided the most detailed and helpful advice I have seen so far. (Though to be honest, I doubt I'll be able to make the most of it until I'm older. Perks of not being 21 in Malaysia, you see). I'll be sure to attend next year's WIP summit and (hopefully) the dozen more summits after that. Again, thank you and have a good day.
