Thought you’d be interested to hear my 2500 word story “How to write a Book (in 10 weeks)” won a Commendation Award in the Hadow Stuart Short Story Competition run by the Australian Fellowship of Writers.
This is the story you assessed/advised for me, so pats on the back all round.
“How to ….” was commended for its strong characterisation, sense of place and observational power. Your advice, on which I obviously acted, proved spot on!
Please accept my sincere thanks, particularly for your encouragement.
I have continued writing and, when we return from a short holiday, will be in contact again.
Thanks again and best wishes

Thanks Candice. I’ve gone through your assessment report and find it to be very useful indeed. Your logical, methodical, honest and open feedback was worth every cent paid.
Thanks so much and good luck in your writing and business.

Thank you to Candice for sharing her new book (Hubert and the Magic Glasses) with the children and providing the art activity to go alongside the story – the children thoroughly enjoyed the book and creating their own magic glasses.

Heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your wonderful presentation yesterday at the Elanora Library about publishing. Your presentation was such a gift, like a huge fog lifting away that has cleared my mind about how I will go about getting my work published.
Eileen Dielesen, B. Couns (UNDWA) MACA
Thanks for the really practical and excellent workshop you held recently at the Elanora Library re ” the next step “. The exercise we scrawled out re what to present in your pitch to an editor was brilliant and fun.
