I am thrilled to finally be allowed to announce that this year I have been lucky enough to have been named one of the two EMERGING WRITERS in RESIDENCE at Katharine Susannah Pritchard Writers Centre outside Perth in 2018!! YAY! YAY!! SUPER YAY!

I’ve applied every year for almost ten years and been shortlisted three times. Never give up people!

So happy to be able to sit and walk and write where this strong political woman who suffered great personal tragedy and wrote so wonderfully and deeply once lived. Thank you Katharine! Thank you KSP Writers Centre! And thank you previous me for not giving up.

See you in June July next year Western Australians!

Last chance for early bird rates for RELAX AND WRITE


Cathedral writing kids


Just back from my trip to far north Queensland and Cape York. Part of my adventures there was running writing workshops for kids, first at The Cathedral School’s Writers’ camp and then at Lockhart River State school. A couple of happy snaps of kids happily writing like furies. Just like you’ll be doing if you come along to Relax and Write! Last chance for early bird rates, so get in quick!

Email Helena on for booking forms and more info. More info in my last post too 🙂
