Congratulations to Mike Sweeney — Winner of the February Bootcamp Buzz Give-Away

As February's Bootcamp Buzz Give-Away Winner, Mike Sweeney will arrive at Bootcamp in style and luxury! He will be met at the airport by a personal driver and then be transported to the Marriott in Delray Beach in a shiny, sleek limousine.

This prize is valued at $150!

"This is going to be my first Bootcamp … I've put off coming for too long. I'm very excited to come meet some fellow AWAI-trained writers and get to know this cool community, as well as have a chance at some real work through the Job Fair. I think it will make it all so much more real … and arriving in style makes it that much better! Thanks again.”

– Mike Sweeney

The Delray Beach Marriott is an intimate, Mediterranean-style hotel located on the Gold Coast at the corner of A1A – Ocean Boulevard and famed Atlantic Avenue. Offering the best of both worlds, guests can enjoy complete seclusion and tranquility at the Delray Beach, Florida hotel, yet be within easy walking distance to boutiques, bistros, outdoor cafés, art galleries, restaurants, and nightlife.
