Hi, Brian.

I just wanted to let you know that I have a story in You may remember it as the story I brought for my first show and share in the Welcome to Creative Writing course I took way back when.  

I’m about ¾ finished my first draft of the YA mystery I started during last year’s Intensive Creative Writing course. I submitted the first 1,500 words to CANSCAIP’s Writing for Children competition. Thanks again for all your encouragement and assistance with my writing.

Hi, Brian. 

I hope you've been well. I've been keeping busy with my writing group and eating too many cookies through this lockdown. I had some good news last week and this morning woke up to a little story of mine on Commuter Lit.

I can't wait for things to move back into the off-line space again.

best wishes to you,

Robyn Morris

Good afternoon, Brian.

I hope this finds you and your family keeping well during this crazy pandemic.  

I want to share the news that I have self-published my first book Book Club.  You did an evaluation for me some 5 years ago, and gave some helpful advice and suggestions, which was very much appreciated.

Book Club is a middle grade novel available here and here.

Hi, Brian.

Great news! The magazine Women in Higher Education has just published my essay on Dark Academia!
