Tell us a little about your writing career.

In the last year I have published several crime fiction stories online and in print, as well as a couple poems. In July of this year I will have a pulp/crime/horror novella published as part of a collection with five other writers.

Who are your literary influences?

I can't point to any great literature. In high school I immersed myself in fantasy and science fiction like many kids do. Edgar Allan Poe has been a favorite of mine since I was young, and Shakespeare made an impact on me in my early college career fifteen years ago. More recently Stephen King has made an impression along with Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, and Chester Himes.

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

Inspiration and motivation. Mingling with other writers has done more for my writing than anything else I can think of. Being a member of a community of writers has been a goal of mine for the last two years.


Hello my name is C. J. Edwards. I am a writer and student a the University of Indianapolis.
