Yes, I saw the Friday Night Live news on twitter. Many congratulations, Helen.September 8, 2018 at 1:28 pm #817HELEN KAMPFNERParticipant
Thanks so much everyone for your support and lovely messages. It was a huge surprise to win the comp. Didn’t think I was in with a chance. Now I’ll have to go away and write the book as I’ve only completed one draft!September 8, 2018 at 5:24 pm #830GiselleParticipant
No pressure Helen! 😃 For those not there, Helen’s victory couldn’t be contested, cheering volume wise. Yes, I think Debi did want to do cartwheels!September 8, 2018 at 10:47 pm #836Mad IguanaParticipant

Congratulations Helen!September 10, 2018 at 10:21 am #896JanetteParticipant
Just catching up with things, including this. Yep, the girl did well. It was an amazing piece well read and really was stand-out. There was one other – a very good comedic piece – which got close, but Helen’s had the edge and I do hope she posts it so that you can see what we mean.September 10, 2018 at 11:19 pm #950Debi AlperParticipant
I would definitely be doing cartwheels if it wouldn’t land me in a neck brace. So proud of Hel for her win, Mandy for her keynote, Philippa for her shortlisting and everyone who has made such massive strides forward.September 11, 2018 at 10:03 am #966RaineParticipant
Hel you are ace, and that’s got to be a huge boost in writing motivation! Would love to see the magic 500words if/when you feel like sharing. Pretty please!September 11, 2018 at 10:16 am #969HELEN KAMPFNERParticipant
Thanks so much everyone and many congrats, Philippa.
Raine, of course I can post it but, frankly, it’s not that wonderful. But I can if you want. Do you mean post it here?
How are you doing? What are you writing? Your work is so good…have you sent anything out to agents recently?September 11, 2018 at 10:27 am #972SandraParticipant
Yes, Hel – please do post – here or in our SE Group (not sure you’ve found that?) but let us know where. I definitely want to read it.
