Love letters ~ where your fellow writers are getting published and Writers wanted

Happy New Year, Brian!
I have some exciting news that I want to share with you. My Young Adult contemporary debut, FIRSTS, was sold to Kat Brzozowski at Thomas Dunne Books/St Martin's Press by my agent, Kathleen Rushall {of Marsal Lyon agency}. Publication is scheduled for 2016. I couldn't be happier about joining the Macmillan family and working with Kat on my book.
I hope to see you at another workshop in London soon!

Hi, Brian.
A quick note to thank you for all of your insight over the past couple of years.  2014 saw me finish a first draft of my novel and get published in the Facts and Arguments section of the Globe & Mail, as well as on CommuterLit.  I don’t think any of this would have been possible without your guidance and input.  Looking forward to our upcoming class.  See you in 2015!

Hi, Brian.
I entered the print-edition of my recently-published nonfiction book, Blaze of Colour: Embracing Creativity, in Shelf Media’s Indie Book competition, and it is being honored as Shelf Unbound Notable Book in the category of Instructional Books.
 I’ve enjoyed your workshops over the years. Thanks!

Hi, Brian.
Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to let you know that the second of the four pieces I worked on in your class has been published. The Girl Who Can't Say No is in the December issue of Luna Station Quarterly.  (My first story, Jing Wei, was published earlier in Mirror Dance Magazine)
Hoping to take the Intensive Creative Writing course again soon. Thanks again for all your help and encouragement.

Hi, Brian.
