Love Letters ~ Where your fellow writers are getting published ~ And "Writers Wanted"

Hello, Brian.
I'm happy to share with you that Tin Roof Press magazine is publishing my funny story "The School of Good Manners" in their summer issue. I started this story in the Intensive class in Mississauga and read it at CJ's cafe.
Thank you for your inspirational courses and for maintaining, through your blog, a reliable connection between writers and publishers.
For information on submitting to Tin Roof, see here. Our next reading night at CJ's Cafe is coming up on Thursday, March 20. Details here.

Note: The spring creative writing courses are starting soon. Check them out here.

Hi, Brian.
I tied for third place in the Burlington Public Library short story contest! They announced the winners at an event last night and said it was unprecedented but they had a tie for third place – and then it was my story, “Friday in the City” and, I don't know, some other chick. ;o)
So thank you to all my classmates  (in the Burlington Intensive course) who gave their feedback on that story (which you saw under the title "Woman without a past"). And at the event at the library, they had people reading all the winners, and the woman who read my story did a beautiful job – I wish I'd had the camera and made a video of it. I couldn't have read it like that!
Note: The Burlington Public Library has been hosting workshops with me lately. The next one is Writing for Children & for Young Adults on Saturday, May 31. Details here.

Hi, Brian.
This is just to let you know that CommuterLit has published "First Kiss.” A couple of days late for Valentine's Day, perhaps, but better late than never.
I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave a comment in the box provided by CommuterLit if you wish.

Hi, Brian.
Just to let you know that Monique Berry of Praise Writers Magazine has accepted another one of my devotionals for her Magazine.
Also, I read a couple of chapters of my fantasy novel that I am working on at the Huronia Museum at a Literary Evening sponsored by the Huronia Foundation for the Arts.

Hi, Brian.
I just wanted to say thanks for the great How to Get Published workshop today.  I thought you had lots of great advice!  Also, Martha Webb (of Anne McDermid literary agency) was wonderful.
I wanted to share with you a piece I had published in the Globe & Mail: "Why I'm happy to finally be a hockey widow again."  
Thanks for the inspiration to keep plugging away!

Writer to Writer
Hello, fellow writers.
I would like to join or start a writing group in the Stoney Creek area. If you have a group looking for a new member or are interested in developing a new one with me, please contact me at 

Hi, Brian.
Thanks so much for offer to send out information about my search for a co-writer. I'm looking for a co-writer on two separate projects:
Project #1: Legend of Claus – A fantasy Christmas novel for young people (approx 8 to 12 years old) that involves an unique rethinking of the legend of Santa Claus.  This project is in early stages and I’m looking for a writer with young fantasy writing experience/knowledge to work together as a co-writer.
Project  #2 Set Crush – A light and a fun novel of a romance that takes place on a location film shoot.  This project is in early to mid stages and I’m looking for a co-writer to step in and work with me.
Michael Pohorly studied Communications while playing varsity hockey at Concordia University and then moved to Vancouver to work as an Assistant Director in the Film Industry. (Credits include: The Grey, This Means War, The A-Team.)   He currently works p/t as a freelance magazine writer in Asia where he just wrote and directed a short film about a son connecting with his father in Bali. Promo Trailer here.
Thanks so much.
