PageTurner Awards has given me so much confidence

I wanted to send an email to you all to say thank you for what has been a truly wonderful experience. Last night's ceremony really blew me away. The whole evening was amazing and the speakers were truly inspirational. My partner who was listening in off-camera loved it and actually left the room and came back in in his tuxedo!
As a relatively new and inexperienced writer, the whole process of the Page Turner Awards has given me so much confidence in my writing. Not only being long-listed for one, and short-listed for another, but the phone call I had with Nikki really spurred me on and has given me much more self-belief. So again, a million thanks for that, and everything you all do. The Page Turner Awards are really what writing competitions should be like.
I hope our paths cross again at some point on my writing journey.
