Wanted: Ride to Algonquin, Plus congratulations to Barbara, Dave, Amy and Jane for getting published and to Dianne for a her nomination for an Aurora Award!

Wanted: Ride share to the Algonquin in June Writing Retreat
I want to go to the writing retreat, but don’t drive. If anyone’s going from somewhere in the London area, I’d love to go with you. I’ll split the gas money, of course, and provide good company on the way up and back.
You haven’t heard about the retreat? Check out the details here.
If you can help, please contact me at:
I’d really appreciate it.
Patricia (Pat) Brown

Hi, Brian.
I just received a confirmation letter from Prairie Fire for my short story that will be published in their spring anthology. And they pay! Cool! And I submitted my first picture book manuscript to Owlkids Books and have one more close to completion to submit.

Good morning, Brian.
The Harvesters has been nominated for an Aurora award – a truly wonderful honour from the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association. (You can check out the nominations here.)
The eureka moment for this sci-fi novel occurred while attending one of your seminars for help with another book, for which I will always be grateful.
See you at your next seminar!

Hello, Brian.
I have been meaning to write you for a couple of reasons. The first, is to thank you for Quick Brown Fox and to let you know that I achieved one of my goals this year through your site. I learned of Alanna Rusnak's new Blank Spaces Magazine and was able to get my first piece (ever!) of flash fiction published!
I wanted to thank you for the work you do helping people like me find their footing in what can be a challenging industry to navigate. As a beginner writer, I find the links and resources on your website very useful.
Thanks very much. Have a great day!

Hi, Brian.
Just wanted you to know that one of my stories was accepted by the Globe & Mail “Facts & Arguments.” You can “Uh-oh. Did I kill my son’s hamster?” here.
And thanks for your help with my query letter for my book. I've just had an agent ask for the full manuscript.
See you soon,
Jane Bedard
