Love letters

Alice Munro,
one of the world's foremost short story writers
Hi, Everybody!
I am thrilled to a million pieces! Have made it to the finals for the Alice Munro Short Story contest. I submitted “Do You like Cowboy Music?” – which I worked on in the Intensive class and that had some revisions with Maria’s very particular eye. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!)
I get to attend the banquet Sept 29, read some of the story, and find out if I am # 1, 2 or 3. Thanks to all of you for your support.
Group hug!!!!!
Sheila Eastman

You go, Sheila!

Hi, Brian.
I wanted to share the good news with you. This is the second time a short story written by myself was accepted into the RNAO (Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario) nursing Journal. See you in Guelph at next workshop. All the best!

Dear Brian,
I just wanted to let you know that I self-published two of my children’s books LittleBug’s First Day of School and HowKetchup Met the Tomato online, and they are now available in the Apple iBook store via iTunes.
I’m not going to make much money since each book is only 99 cents. But knowing that more and more people are actually buying and reading my books is priceless.
You may not remember me, but I’m still using my notes from your Welcome to Creative Writing class I took back in 2008.
Thank you for everything!
Natalya Scharnhorst

Hi, Brian.
If it weren't for the generous sharing of class participants, I wouldn't have known about CommuterLit, let alone had the courage to submit a poem to them. Thanks for your strong teaching and your ability to create a really helpful culture within the class. You can read my poem here

Thanks again,
Joan Vinall-Cox
