Instead of the usual author quote for this week, we'd like to honor Amanda Bylsma, a Pikes Peak Writers volunteer who passed away unexpectedly earlier this week.
Amanda will be sorely missed at PPWC 2014. While her position as Pitch Coordinator has been filled by past Pitch Coordinator, Bonnie Hagan, ensuring a seamless transition, Amanda's absence will leave a hole that cannot be filled. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time.
Personally, I'll miss talking to her. She wasn't just a volunteer, but a friend, and my heart is heavy at her loss. Our loss.
