Hello, Brian!
You were the first person I thought of with my good news! In my last session of Intensive Writing, I did a piece titled “The Firing of Number Forty.” I submitting it to the Globe and Mail's “First Person” and I just learned today that they want to publish it!
It was just the pick me up I needed; work sucks and my writing has been nearly non-existent because of it. But this – yahoo!!

Hi, Brian.
Hope this finds you and yours happy and healthy.
It has been a number of years since I took any courses with you but thought you might be interested to know I submitted a story to Chicken Soup for the Soul last fall and it was chosen. My story, The Cat Reader, will be on bookshelves May 19 in the volume called Chicken Soup for the Soul: Life Lessons from the Cat.
Take good care,
Cheryl M. Taylor
