WMC Fest Speakers Bare their Souls
Jeff Finley, founder of WMC Fest, said it best: “Something about the WMC Fest stage, people stand up there and start spilling their guts. It transcends career. They took off their band-aids and showed us all their wounds, and it’s okay because they know they’ll be supported and taken care of. They will be loved.”
Whether you were there in the crowd, or did not have the fortune to be, you’re in luck. We’ve collected all of the WMC Fest 4 speaker videos for you. They’re available below, as well as on our Vimeo channel.
Here, you can gobble up the generous, heartfelt, honest stories of John Jennings, Alonzo Felix, Timothy Goodman, Ann Friedman & Dylan Lathrop, Lisa Congdon, Rena Tom, Christen Carter, Stewart Scott-Curran, Caroline Moore, Adam Garcia, Valerie Mayen, Grace Dobush, Jon Contino, Nick Disabato, Jacqui Oakley, Kern & Burn, These are Things, Troy Deshano, Stephanie Landes Burris and Brandon Rike. Here, you can feel like you’re not alone.
