Note: If you’ve gotten yourself an agent, had a story (or a book!) published or you’ve placed in a writing contest or have any other news, send me an email so I can share your success and we can all encourage each other. And be sure to let know if you have something for "Writer to Writer" (if you're looking for a writers' group or beta readers, for examples).

Hi, Brian.
Pretty excited here! I wrote a story in the last class you taught in Waterloo. Then as you suggested we all do, I sent it out into the world. And it found a home at CommuterLit.
Thank you so much for your very encouraging class!

Our next workshop in Waterloo will be Writing With Style on Saturday, February 23. Details here.

Hello, Brian.
Very happy to let you know that a poem of mine will be published in Lean In magazine from Polar Expressions publishing! I entered their nationwide contest and my poem made it through the first round and will be published this December. A small accomplishment no doubt. However, for me ... very exciting, as this is my first time to be published.
Thanks again Brian for your very helpful Quick Brown Fox blog. Glad I came to your seminar last year.
I will let you know if my poem wins 1st 2nd or 3rd place. I am ecstatic, as I can say I am soon to be a published poet!
Thanks and regards!
Brian Kendall
