Love letters ~ Where your fellow writers are getting published, plus Writers wanted for critique group

Hi, Brian.
My memoir short, “The Bracelet and the Puppy,” (that I originally wrote for your course) has, with a few tweaks, placed second in the Niagara on the Lake Rising Spirits contest for nonfiction. Yay! Also, thanks for making me do all those assignments!

Hi, Brian.

Hello, Brian.
I want to share the good news that I rolled my self-published workbook, A Map to Limitless Parenting, this week. I still remember my first workshop with you (a few years ago) up in Gravenhurst and you really sparked my motivation to see my writing goals through. 
I'll be seeing you again because, as you know, my writing journey has just begun and I'm developing two more books in this parenting workbook series.

A Map to Limitless Parenting is available as a Kindle ebook for free or in paperback for $20.35 here.  

Hi Brian!
I am thrilled to announce that I have won the 2016 Book Excellence Award for fantasy! Fantastic validation that is urging me back to the keyboard. Thanks for helping me reach my goals!

Hi, Brian.
I’m looking forward to the How to Get Published workshop with Stacey Donaghy (here). I attended one of your workshops when I was in my twenties and just beginning to write. I'm now forty-seven and proud to say that I’m a published author (Chicken Soup for the Canadian Soul) and poet. I vividly remember that your workshop was one of my first ever and I was truly inspired ... thank you! Believing in yourself is half the battle.
