The Starridium Academy Multi-Genre Writer's Contest results!
Hi! I'm Tyler Benjamin, 9th grade student in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I write both poetry and narrative writing. Although I wish to write and finish a novel one day, I have never done so.
I have recently been placed in a U.S. Government class, which has inspired me to be more involved in political issues and form my own opinion. I may be writing essays and poems on political issues in the near future.
Images used in my writing pieces are not mine.
I have finished a short horror novel called "The Doctor's Party"! Please read over it and leave helpful comments.
I honestly LOVE writing. The idea of creating a whole new world for the reader to immerse themselves in simply enchants me. I hope you will enjoy my work!
Politics: Hmm. Well. Still new to most of this but I am probably a moderate liberal. I believe leaning to only 1 side isn't healthy for government. I support: same-sex marriage, pro-choice, mixed economy, protection of natural habitats/reserved land, logging with reforestation, secular government, government regulation of pollution, more funding for education and improvements to education.
I do not support: nationwide healthcare, extreme welfare policies, deficit spending.
Undecided on: legalization of marijuana, continuation of the "War on Drugs".
"My favorite word? Diversity. You need to stand out from everyone else. Be the yellow flower in a field of white."
"Words are the most beautiful form of art that I can muster. Charming, always brilliant, never lackluster."
