Love Letters

Hi Brian,
I just wanted to share some exciting news with you today - I wrote a poem for a magazine called Mississauga Life and they published it! The magazine is mailed to approx 70,000 homes in Mississauga, and you can also view it online.

It's a great magazine - just click on the Spring Issue to flip through it online - my poem is on page 15 and it's called "A Mother's Wish." I hope you like it.

Thank you for hosting a very inspirational and productive Creative Writing course.
Take care,
Ann Ivy Male

Hi Brian
Hope you're well! I just wanted to share some exciting news - I won runner-up for my creative nonfiction story in the Lush Triumphant 2010 contest. My story, “1948,” will be published in the Spring 2011 edition of SubTerrain (I believe it's available at Chapters). Needless to say, I'm very excited. Just thought I'd share the news with you - seeing as you helped "birth" me as a writer.

Take care and hopefully we'll see each other some time soon!

Hi, Brian.
Thanks for your newsletter with your always-enticing workshop offerings. I would like to attend the Writing and Revising workshop here in London April 16. I'm trying to remember how many of your courses I have attended and I'm not completely sure, but it is a bunch. Most recently, I drove all the way to Toronto for your How to Get Published seminar, which was great.

I have had some recent success with my writing and am hoping to keep the ball rolling. I recently had a couple of short stories published. One was in an online-only journal called The Writers Block (Issue #7) and the other was a print and online literary magazine from England called Litro. I just got my contributor's copy in the mail and it is pretty cool. Also, my novel "Henry on the Fifth" made the long list in the Simon Fraser University's Writer's Studio 1st Book Competition and is currently making the rounds with publishers.

Looking forward to seeing you.
