    As a budding novelist, I wonder if there's anyone on this forum who is also interested in writing: novels, poetry or even travel writing.

    I know someone in the US who's a struggling writer. I can put you in touch with him.

    Thanks for the offer. Is he on forums like this one? Really I'm just happy chatting to people online and sharing anecdotes etc. I was also hoping to discover Canadian writers, as I haven't had any luck coming across particular writing groups or forums. any ideas?

    All very official looking groups that came up, but thanks for the suggestion. :)

    Personally, I like novels, especially historical novels. On the other hand, poetry is not my cup of tea.

    I'm just starting out myself. Recently, I submitted 2 short stories to the Quebec Writer's Association which sponsored a writing contest. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, I didn't win any prize. In any case, a writing contest does not necessarily indicate talent; just striking the right cord with the judges. :)

    I am a writer and a poet. For a few years I have been working on a novel. Because it is not yet completed and copyrighted, I will not say here what it is about.
