Congratulations to Johanna on the publication of her 1st short story and to Nancy and Pam on getting honorable mentions in the 15 Stories High Contest

Hi Brian, 
I have received an Honourable Mention in the Canadian Author’s Association 15 Stories High contest. This means that my story, “The Hike,” will be published in their 2019 anthology. 
All the best,
Pam Nowina

Hi, Brian,
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I won an Honourable Mention in the CAA Niagara 15 Stories High contest! The bad news is that the launch is on March 30th, so I will have to miss your Dialogue workshop. Next time, I hope!
Nancy Taber

If you’re not attending the launch for the 2019 Fifteen Stories High anthology, I’m running a How to Write Great Dialogue workshop, Saturday, March 30, in Burlington. Good dialogue is hard to write and it’s often what agents and publishers look at to separate the sheep from the goats; the authors they want to work with, from the authors who still need to learn more. See details here. ~Brian
Hi, Brian.
Finally, I was brave enough to send one of my short pieces, “Upstairs Balcony,” to CommuterLit, and Guess what? 
They’ve published my short story! I’m so excited!!!
Thank you so much for all your help to improve my writing! 
You’re awesome!
