    MENTOR ADMINISTRATOR Poetry, Children's Stories, Non-Fiction, Photography and Blogging
    CHIEF MENTOR Fiction, especially, Sci-Fi and Fantasy.
    Born in 1978, work at a college. I've had a lifelong battle with OCD which has given me an interest in how the mind works. I'll show up from time to time in most places, but particularly the SF&F forum. I'm quite good at spotting grammar and spelling mistakes in other people's work, so feel free to ask me if you'd like me to check for those.

    ADVANCED MENTOR Areas of interest are mostly science fiction and mystery writing, with a deep knowledge of world building and novel writing. Raised on golden age science fiction, Patrick Bishop is the king of camp, the master of melodrama, and the one man who can bring enjoyable, pulp sci-fi back to the masses!
    ADVANCED MENTOR non-fiction, speculative fiction, TV and film scripts, and musical composition.
    I was first published as an author but have been most published as a managing editor. Fluent in English, French, German, gibberish, and filth.
    ADVANCED MENTOR New and young writers, prose and side-trips challenge.
    Hello all. I am 26 years old and have a fondness for writing as we all do. I enjoy both reading others work and helping them to improve as well as writing my own. I am currently working on my young adult Gothic novel: Memories at midnight. Finally whilst suffering from dyslexia I have a degree in English Literature. Nice to meet you all PM me as I am happy to help.

    ADVANCED MENTOR Poetry, Short Prose and Stories, Non-Fiction. Reading and writing interests deliberately eclectic with a slant toward poetry, short prose and stories, non-fiction. Enjoy critiquing, editing out excess words. I have developed more of an interest in novels via WF and though I am co-writing one with another forum member I am by no means ready to take one on myself at this point. I also have an active interest in photography and cooking and am open to pretty well anything that may happen along. Male, retired, Canadian. Post secondary education BSc. (mostly Chemistry.) No real foreign language knowledge aside from four years of French in high school and a little Latin which I was not really very interested in or very good at. I spent most of my working life in factories (one 23 years) and am somewhat inclined toward the scientific, mathematical and mechanical side. I like to cruise the forums with "Latest posts" and just latch onto anything that catches my eye. I probably spend most of my time on 'Poetry', 'Poetry Discussion', 'Writers Discussion' as well as word games and the social/procrastination threads. My guess, I actually have not been keeping track. I have very much enjoyed and value my experience at Writing Forums. It has both focused my energies as well as expanded my horizons. I enjoy doing critiques especially if they involve pruning and cutting things down to size. I had never really realized how opinionated I am on some issues and that i actually share them with many other people. I am in a perpetual struggle to keep up with the whole scene but over time i do manage to get things straightened out. Bruce.

    I'm a twenty-five year-old who is planning to go to university for his B.A soon. I've written a few novels so far, but they have gone unpublished. I'm currently working on another one and am 75,000 words in. I also write short stories and poetry. I enjoy all genres and forms of poetry, short stories and fiction.

    IRetired financial computer systems designer and developer, over age 70. Electronics is my main hobby, especially vintage computer technology and mathematics is a pleasure. I do not consider myself a writer but spontaneously wrote a novel in 2011 and have been trying to find out how and why ever since. Apparently when I write creatively I include veiled references to future events, hence many of my areas of interest mentioned. Apart from that diversion, I am a very rational, logical and pedantic chap inclined to have my tongue permanently in my cheek, so it is advisable always to read what I write carefully or twice, preferably both. I accept praise of my occasional writing but am inclined to ignore it, so to remain unbiased I do the same with criticism. I am married to an angel, of that there is no doubt. She is also a member of WF. We both beta read members' longer works but her preferred genres differ from mine, so between us we cover quite a lot.
