Congratulations to Bruce Madole on winning the John Kenneth Galbraith Literary Award, and to Jennifer, Barbara, Michelle, Margaret, and Anne on getting published!
Congratulations to Bruce Madole!
Many of you know Bruce from our Thursday evening class in Georgetown or from our occasional reading nights. He’s won the 2017 John Kenneth Galbraith Literary Award and the hefty prize that goes along with it. Way to go, Bruce!

I received an email from G&M Facts and Arguments this week and they tell me they plan to publish a piece I sent in back at the end of July. Very excited! Your advice on getting work out there and your suggestions for places to submit have been excellent. I never would have done it without your encouragement. Thank you.
Note: The Globe and Mail published Jennifer’s piece, “Ghosting is no way to end a relationship,” on October 27. Read it here.
And read another short piece by Jennifer, “Twenty-eight Double A” on Quick Brown Fox here.
