Update: And Karen has won the Hamilton Literary Award — yay, Karen!
I’d like to order a copy of the 2022 Canadian Writers Contest Calendar — hope you’re selling them again this year.
Also I should have let you know this a while back. I was pleased to take first place in the fiction category of The North Shore Writers’ Association 2021 Annual Writing Competition back in April. I entered after finding the contest listed in the book!
I am indeed selling the Canadian Writers Contest Calendar again this year. Check out the details here.
I hope you're staying safe and well.
I just wanted to let you know that one of my stories, "The Wolf You Feed," will appear in Tyche Books' Home for the Howlidays anthology.

– hope this note finds you well.
I recently won a writing contest for a short piece I submitted in the summer. “What A Difference A Day Makes” is published on Prose Online.
I had written parts of this piece in much longer forms, the first section most certainly workshopped in your Intensive Writing Class. I then pieced it together with a host of other longer scenes I’d written and pared it down to about 740 words. I think I’m becoming a fan of the short form – fewer opportunities to screw up, I suppose, akin to answering a Jeopardy question with just a person’s last name, leaving me to option to screw up on the first name.
I’ve got another longer piece to be published later in the fall with a Christmas theme. I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks again for all your support and direction, and pulling together such a marvelous community of writers and readers.
Take care, and stay safe – these are strange times still.
