    Hi Leslie,

    My name is Arturo and I am looking forward to attending your session at the Florida Writers Association Mini conference later this month in Altamonte Springs. Your topic of Effective Writing Tools will be a welcomed opportunity for development and learning. Just thought I would extend a greeting in the hopes of connecting.

Tell me what you're thinking!
