I have a couple of new stories up on CommuterLit and sent a query to Anne Shone at Scholastic. I'm really trying to get my work out!
See links to all six of Liz’s stories on CommuterLit here. Read Part 1 or her most recent story here and part two here.
Note: Anne Shone, senior editor at Scholastic Books, will be my guest speakers at the Writing for Children & for Young Adults workshop on Saturday, May 27, in St. Catharines (see here).
Because of your suggestions, and encouragement, my story "Shattered" is on CommuterLit!
And my story “A Day in My Life" was on 50-Word Stories – that one is actually an adaption of what I wrote in your workshop on February 11 in Caledon.
Thanks again, see you in May at the Kid Lit workshop!
See Michelle’s story, “Shattered” on CommuterLit here. and “A Day in My Life” on 50-Word Stories here.

I'm attaching the link to the article I wrote for SickNotWeak.com! It’s titled “Release the Guilt.” Check it out here.
See you next week in in the Personal Stories class!
Note: I'll be leading a Personal Stories class on Thursday afternoons in Burlington, starting April 27. See here. See all seven classes from beginners to advanced starting this spring here. ~Brian
My essay, “What’s wrong with growing old? A disillusioned soul is more frightening than an aging body” has been published in the Globe & Mail. I am very pleased, and extremely grateful for your help and encouragement.

Wanted: Ride share to the Algonquin in June Writing Retreat
Hi, I want to go to the retreat, but don’t drive. If anyone’s going from somewhere in the London area, I’d love to go with you. I’ll split the gas money, of course, and provide good company on the way up and back.
You haven’t heard about the retreat? Check out the details here.
If you can help, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d really appreciate it.
