Previous Superstars Seminars are made available as DVDs and MP3s as well, in case you weren’t able to make it. Remember, the wealth of information taught in Superstars changes each year, as the industry itself changes. Past seminars have useful information that might not be covered in this year’s hot topics and lessons.

Superstars Writing Seminars will be held February 2–4, 2017 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) at the  Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado. A day of writing craft seminars is also available on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 as an add-on to the regular seminars.
