Congratulations to Brad Weber, Julie McArthur, and Emmanuel Erskine!

Three former students from my creative writing courses at George Brown College and Humber College have recently scored major victories in the publishing world.

Julie McArthur's first published story, "Summer Sublet", was published in issue 21.1 of Other Voices Magazine. Her second published story, "Men and the Drink" will appear soon in the Black Bile Press chapbook series.

Brad Weber's first published story, "Red Rubber Balls", has just been accepted to appear in an upcoming issue of The Dalhousie Review.

Emmanuel Erskine's story, "The Dinner Guest" was one of six stories to make the short-list for the 2009 Matrix LitPop Award. (Interestingly, my own story "Bankrupt" was also one of the finalists.)

All of the stories noted above were workshopped in one of my creative writing courses.

Congratulations, Julie, Brad, and Emmanuel!
