Hi, Brian.

I hope you are well. I’m writing to let you know that I have a piece of microfiction to be published in’s anthology, Stargazers. The anthology has 20 science fiction micro stories (under 200 words) centred on the theme of “stars”. The stories are the winners of aescifi’s annual micro-fiction contest. It’s now available here.

Thanks so much,

Diane Dubas

Hi, Brian.

I wanted to let you know that my fiction piece "The Rock Wall" has just been bought by Dreamers Creative Writing and will be published soon. This is the first time I've been paid for my fiction and not my non-fiction! Thank you for all your support for my fiction-writing. The hard work is beginning to pay off, and hopefully soon I can publish a collection of stories!

Hi, Brian.

Just learned that for the second year in a row, I'm the YA winner of the annual Muskoka Novel Marathon with 'The Sound of a Rainbow'. We had 72 hours to write a novel in this year's virtual event and I was ready to collapse when it was over. Many thanks to the organizing team!

I shared the opening pages at your Kid Lit workshop in Mississauga. Cheers!

You can read the media release here.

Sharon Frayne

Note: Sharon also won the Most Prolific Award, having written 40,000 words over the weekend.

The next Muskoka Novel Marathon is scheduled for July 16 – 19, 2021. Here’s hoping this one will be in-person, but maybe have an online option, too. Details here.

Writer to Writer

Fellow writers,

I live in the Windsor area and I am looking for virtual writing buddies or critique partners. I am a serious writer and I would like to finish several drafts that I have written in the genres of Women’s Fiction and Commercial Fiction. 

I'm looking to work with other writers, who are serious about writing, for mutual critique and support, and eventually, a beta reader. If a mutually beneficial relationship develops, perhaps our virtual partnership can turn into a face-to-face writing group when social circumstances allow.

Please contact me at

 Kind Regards,



See Brian Henry’s schedule hereincluding Saturday writing workshops, weekly writing classes, and weekend retreats in Algonquin Park, Alliston, Bolton, Barrie, Brampton, Burlington, Caledon, Collingwood, Georgetown, Georgina, Guelph, Hamilton, Jackson’s Point, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Midland, Mississauga, New Tecumseth, Oakville, Ottawa, Peterborough, St. Catharines, Sudbury, Toronto, Windsor, Woodstock, Halton, Muskoka, Peel, Simcoe, York Region, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
