I would like to add a special thanks to Angela and Biff at the Beach Bazaar and especially to Angela who managed to pull a couple of rabbits out of one of her many, many hats which saved my butt on Submission day and Awards night! Thank you Angela you guys Rock! And a big thank you to all the contestants who came to the writing workshops and handed in manuscripts. Thank you!
