Pleased as punch

I’m always tickled pink when one of my writing students has success. Best of all was probably when my student Pat Forde was nominated for a Hugo in 2003 (for best novella, for “In Spirit,” from Analog); Pat had come to see me when I was writer-in-residence at the Richmond Hill Public Library in 2000, and he took my four-day intensive workshop at the University of Toronto in 2002.

But this one is pretty damn good, too: Susan Forest, who participated in a two-day workshop I ran for Calgary’s Imaginative Fiction Writers’ Association (IFWA) in 2003, just sold a story called “Immunity” to Asimov’s Science Fiction — way cool! I’m just delighted for her.
