Kudos to Lynn and Shazia on their book deals and to Sue, Jane, and Jill on getting short pieces published

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. As writers, we’re all in this together, and your good news gives us all a boost. 

Also, 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.

As always your workshops are extremely beneficial in every way.

I had attended your Kid Lit workshop where you had invited Jennifer Stokes from Owl Kids Press and I was able to share my manuscript "The Eidi Bag" during that workshop.

My manuscript has been accepted for publication by OwlKids!!!

Thank you and keep the workshops coming.

Kind regards

Shazia Afzal

Hi, Brian.

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to share the good news with you, that I have a story in the new issue 51/2 of EVENT magazine from Douglas College in Westminister, BC. The story is called “River Swim.”

Your classes and encouragement, and the encouragement of fellow writers in workshops, have been a large contributor to my writing life. Thank you.
