Congratulations to Victoria, Emily, Dana, and Elaine!

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.

I hope this email finds you well. I’d like to share some good news: I have my first contract with Orca Book Publishers for a manuscript that will debut in Fall 2022. It’s called Super Power? The Wearable Tech Revolution.

I’ve participated in many of your courses, and I was part of your Burlington writer’s workshop, where you and group members helped me develop earlier versions of this manuscript. Thanks for your support!

Best regards,

Elaine Kachala

Hi, Brian.

I have some good news to share. After taking several of your workshops over the years, I now have a book out in the world! The Beekeepers: How Humans Changed the World of Bumble Bees, is a nonfiction book for middle grade children published by Scholastic Focus. It is now available through Indigo, Amazon, and independent bookstores. I'm so excited!

Thank you for all your updates and newsletters. I always enjoy hearing from Quick Brown Fox.

Best wishes,

Dana L. Church


The Beekeepers is available from Chapters here or buy it from your local book store – see here.


Hi, Brian.

My story "The Rock Wall" has just been published in Dreamers Creative Writing! I'm a little annoyed that it's listed under Nonfiction, but I think it's because I said this piece was autobiographical when I submitted it. Oh well.

Check it out here.

Hi, Brian.

I hope this email finds you well.

A fond hello to the regular Friday morning class.

Just writing to pass along some good news--my story "Of Fish and Fowl" was published in Entropy magazine.

Thanks for your all your great suggestions and encouragement!
