Congratulations to everyone who made it to the second round or was a finalist in the CANSCAIP contest and to Richard and Paula for getting stories published; plus beta readers and a critique partner wanted

Note: If you’ve 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" (you're looking for a writers' group or beta readers, for examples). Email me at:

Hi, Brian:
Captain Monty by Jennifer Mook-Sang, now published by
Kids Can Press, was a finalist in the 2014 CANSCAIP contest
I was thrilled to learn that I made it to the second stage of the CANSCAIP contest!
See you in class on Friday.
Congratualations, Karyn! And congratulations to everyone who submitted a story, congratulations to those who made it to the second stage of the contest, and congratulations to Karon Young, whose entry was a finalist!
Note: The CANSCAIP writing contests is for authors of kid lit – picture books through young adults. One of the nice features of the contest is that you receive feedback on your entry. In addition, the two winners and eight finalists all have their work submitted to three Canadian children's publishers. Entries for 2019 open in March.
More about the CANSCAIP contest here.

Hi, Brian.
I had another short piece published today in the Literary Yard's e-journal. You can find the story here. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to have flash fiction published.
I'm looking forward to seeing you at upcoming workshops.
Kind Regards,
Richard Tattoni

Hi again, Brian.
I am writing slowly. The Polar Expressions contest accepted a story of mine for their anthology. And I am almost ready to submit another story to the CBC Short Story Contest.
Thank you for all your guidance!

A bit of the Inca Trail
I'm looking for (1) a fellow writer who has (2) walked the Inca Trail and (3) would be willing to read the first 30,000 words of my novel, THE FIASCO, to (4) tell me if I've got the hike right.
If you are interested then please contact me at
It goes without saying that I will return the huge favour!

Hello, Brian:
Really enjoyed workshop. Wish I was closer so I could attend a weekly intensive writing class.
I’m looking for a critique partner. I am writing a novel. The story is pretty intense. The main characters are twins. The story is about their lives; one will suffer and live a lonely life yet survive as a beautifully evolved heroine; the other will be blessed in every way yet fail to survive or self-actualize. Christ is also a character in the story, though it is not a “Christian” book at this point. Thank you
