    Calling All Mentors!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ASBraun, Jul 20, 2017.

    Hi folks! Novice writer here trying to get his bearings.

    Right out the gate I'd like to say that I'm interested in making contact with other writers, especially ones that can offer advice and are willing to entertain some questions about the writing process. If not, I'm happy to discuss ideas and exchange resources with anyone.

    As a brief bio, I'll just say that my primary interest in writing is in self-contained fictional explorations of puzzling concepts through verse or prose. I have a lot to explore in the literary world, but I have spent that past few years investigating literary classics. Recently I've been interested in literary Modernism, which has been mostly unknown to me before now. If you have some background or interest in the literary canon, please drop me a line! Hope to meet some of you, thanks for reading!

    (Some favorite Authors in no order: David Foster Wallace, Mark Z. Danielewski, Kafka, Virginia Woolf, Hemingway, Dickens, Lewis Carroll, James Thurber, Washington Irving, Lovecraft, Fitzgerald, Thoreau, English Romantics, et al.)

    Welcome. I was going to buy a literary canon, but I got a Bereatta 92F instead.
