Congratulations to Barbara, Jane, Sue, Linda, and Emily!

If you’ve had a story (or a book!) published, if you’ve won or placed in a writing contest, if you’ve gotten yourself an agent, or if you have any other news, send me an email so I can share your success. And be sure to let know if you're looking for a writers' group or beta readers; a notice in Quick Brown Fox, will help you find them.

Hi, Brian.

My YA novel, Summer of Lies, has a cover and a release date – February 1.

Quill & Quire magazine is going to feature it in their upcoming edition. No guarantee how big a space. At the very least it will be listed with their recommended books for the coming season.

It's happening and getting more real. Woohoo 2021!

Hi, Brian.

My story, “Some Assembly Required,” which was workshopped in the Friday morning Intensive class, was published today in The Penmen Review.

And more good news, another story has been accepted by The New Quarterly for spring/summer publication: "Mango Madness" – also workshopped in class.

Hi, Brian:

Just wanted to let you know that I’m doing some travel writing now for Luxury. I had offered to ‘gift’ a piece of my writing related to my favourite vacation spot - St. Maarten and since then I have had 3 paid assignments. So cool. I just finished one on the Top Hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake - which will launch soon. Your editing suggestions in class, helped me draw people, in while keeping it succinct and interesting.

Hi, Brian.

I have some good news! A story I wrote in the first Personal Stories class and then polished as my homework and read to a breakout group the next week, has made it into the finals of the WOW creative nonfiction essay contest.

Yay! First time!

See you in class!

Linda Young

Hi, Brian.

I wanted to let you know the good news. My fiction piece "Not Quite in Love" has been accepted by Wild Roof Journal. Janine from the writing class read it for me and gave me feedback. I'm going to tell the rest of the class this Wednesday when we meet up on Zoom.
