Love letters ~ Where your fellow writers are getting published ~ and writing buddy and beta readers wanter

Hi, Brian.
One of the stories I wrote in your Welcome to Creative Writing class this summer has been published on Commuterlit. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your feedback on the story and for all of your helpful classes and workshops. This is the first time one of my short stories has been published anywhere, ever! (Obviously, I'm quite excited about it!).
Thanks again and I look forward to attending more of your workshops and classes.
Read Amy’s story, “On Target” here.

Hello Brian,
Just to let you know that my short piece we looked at in the Intensive class two weeks ago, entitled “Comeback” will be on CommuterLit. That makes six! Amazing!
Thanks to you in large measure.
Read “Comeback” here. For links to all six of Dave’s pieces published on CommuterLit, see here.

Hi, Brian.
I have another flash nonfiction piece, “Under the Peonies” published in the anthology Reflections: Ultra Short Personal Narratives. (They left the “p” out of my name). See here.
I’ve also had several poems published on, but that’s another life and pursuit, separate from my nonfiction work. 

Hey, Brian.
Hope this message finds you well.  I know we’ve talked about my book coming out soon. Seven years in the making, Driven Press is finally publishing A Keeper’s Truth in hardcover Jan / Feb 2016, with trade paperback and e-book launching March 2016. This was a book I worked on in one of your classes many years ago. 
Well, my publisher’s cover reveal was yesterday and my website just launched.
Check it out!  
So exciting!

Dear writers of Oakville/Burlington,
I am interested in finding a writing partner in Oakville. If interested please e-mail me at 
Sue Silva

I was wondering if any of your students might be interested in becoming a Beta Reader for a completed thriller novel that is comprised of 84,000 words.  I have also put this on the Ryerson Career website.
I have pasted my query letter to give you an idea of my story.
Laura Amour is a psychiatrist and a leading Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) counselor for first responders.  What her clients don’t know is that she also hunts and kills pedophiles.
Laura is all too familiar with the damage sexual of abuse has on its victims, and the nightmares which haunt their families and even the officers who have to investigate these crimes. Using skills learned from the emergency workers that she helps, like long range shooting and fire chemistry, Laura has started a crusade to draw attention to the issue.  Now that her crusade has come to the police’s attention, Laura knows she only has a limited window to escape the country.  But there is one last monster to kill and he is being guarded by an elite team of police.
 Now Laura has to decide: flee or die trying.
 If this project interests any of your students, they can contact me at:  
Thank you,
Dave Wickenden
