Love letters (where your fellow writers are getting published) & Writer to Writer

Jessica Faust, owner of
BookEnds literary agency
Hi, Brian.
I have two agents who've requested my manuscript; one from Fine Print and one from Bookends (Bookends is famous for representing cozy mysteries). They both loved the first three chapters, and the agent from Fine Print awarded me winner in the Unsinkable Molly contest, so we'll see.

If you want help finding an agent, come to my “How to Get Published” workshop on May 4 in Barrie. Details here.


Hi, Brian.
Just wanted to share with you that my story "1948" just got published in subTerrain magazine (vol. 63). I'm thrilled (needless to say)! It was an honourable mention in the Lush Triumphant Writer's contest.
Thank you for support - it's been a while - hope to see you sometime soon!

Hi, Brian.
I have some news. I poem of mine "Fallow God," will be published in the upcoming Green Man Anthology, published by Edge. More details are on my blog: Maajawentz.com.
Take care and I hope to see you again when you are in Toronto.
Many thanks,
Maaja Wentz

Hi, Brian.
I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to run your newsletter.. My work has won second place in the 2012 Elora Writers' Festival, first in the "Lest We Forget" category of the 2012 Canadian Stories Competition, and just today my micro fiction, "Baggage," has been accepted in the next issue of HelloHorror.
There may have been others – last year was incredible – but those are the ones that stick in my mind. I wouldn't have been aware of any of them if it wasn't for your newsletter. So thank you, sir ... and I'll even append that: thank you 'very much.

The Elora’s Writers’ Festival is taking a break from running a contest this year, but they’ve promised to renew their contest for 2014.


Writer to Writer:

Every Book Needs a Cover!
Cover by Susan Krupp
There's something special about collaborating with a writer.
For awhile now I've been doing just this and each project has been a remarkable journey. 
I'm a freelance artist living in Northern Ontario and seem to click with the creative writing process in that with a brief synopsis I've somehow hit the nail on the head with a visual representation of a writers intent.  I absolutely love creating book jackets!  With the online market being so rich in diversity and competition – I'm hoping to create a bit of a niche for helping those budding and aspiring writers in offering my services. 
My rate is $150.00 CAD per cover and the image becomes yours exclusively. 
If you'd like to discuss a jacket design – I'm readily available, flexible and eager! 
Thanks!
Susan Krupp
