Hi again, Brian. 
I’m pleased to relate that I’ve placed another poem with Northern Cardinal Review. You can read it hereThis is my second acceptance from them, and hopefully I’ll have many more in due time. Promoting the beauty of Canada's natural geography will never grow old, and I am well on my way to 50 writing credits by age 50, thanks to you and Quick Brown Fox!
Francine Lee
P.S. I also, have had several poems and short fiction and nonfiction pieces published with another online publication, One Thousand Trees.
Northern Cardinal has also published pieces by other Quick Brown Fox readers in the past couple years, and it seems like a good place to send your work. Check it out here.   
And for information about One Thousand Trees, see here.

Hey, Brian: 
Good news! I have a poem coming out on CommuterLit.
I believe with writing the crossovers between courses, workshops and creation continue to weave and so I know the course I took with you Brian positively impacts the writing coming now. I'm looking forward to taking your workshop in Stouffville in May (At the “How to Get Published” workshop with literary agent Carly Watters – details here).
In the meantime, I’m sending many thank yous and blessings for all you do for writers, publishers and agents...
Check out all of Charlene’s pieces on CommuterLit here. For information about submitting to CommuterLit, see here.

Hi, Brian.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful classes you offer. The support and information your classes provide, gave me what I needed to keep going. I have finished my first draft of my first book. I can't tell you what a thrill it is. What you told us was so true:  just keep writing and it will all fall into place.
Thanks, Brian!
Carol Robinson

I wanted to let you know the great news that I've accepted a two-book offer from MIRA (Harlequin's women's fiction imprint), and the first book will hit shelves mid 2015. It was quite the rollercoaster ride, the journey to publication, but the end result was well worth it.
Hope you're all doing well, and writing away!
