What Artists are Saying

The Endoresements

One of the biggest challenges of an independent artists is lack of access to resources, finances, and influencers who enhance your visibility. V Helena has created a platform that serves as a collective voice to raise awareness about who we are as artists and the stories we’re born to tell. Honored to have been a guest on the first season of such a well curated program, which resonates, vibrates and uplifts our community.

I loved it!  It was just too short!

V. Helena is a wonderful cheerleader for writers!  Her show The Writers Haven provides a forum for writers to discuss their work and reach their audiences.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the show and the conversation with V.  Thanks for all you do for the writing community.

V interviewed me for the show and I really enjoyed talking with her.  She's knowledgeable and passionate about books and authors and it shows.  Her questions were on point and she made me feel very comfortable.  It felt like two friends chatting about books and writing!

Fun interview with V. Helena on all kinds of things!

Thank you for the in-depth interview you conducted with me the other day. Seldom does anyone just unleash me like this. Your questions were probing and inspiring!
