About

I've been a writer since 1956. I've seen writing and publishing change a lot over the years. I look forward to exploring the ways Wattpad connects people to reading and writing, and may help give them confidence through feedback from readers.

I am also an inventor and entrepreneur. Six years ago, the LongPen -- the first it's-really-your-signature in pen on paper, but remotely -- made its debut. It is now part of the services offered by Syngrafii.com; and is also the basis for a writer/creator/fan/reader service being built at http://www.fanado.com/.

Hi, Ms. Atwood! I recently did a poetry project on some of your works and I fell in love with "Sekhmet, the Lion-Headed Goddess of War." It was amazing to see history through the eyes of a goddess , and I admire your writing style. I can't wait to read some of your novels!

Our community started with one little book club featuring The Handmaid's Tale, and we all fell in love.  Now we've grown bigger and are writing our little hearts out.  Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing your unrivaled talent.
Hello Ms. Atwood I'm a long time fan of your books and I recently finished year of the flood in print. It was amazing. I would be touched if you read my book: (it's a work in progress) How to kill a gay stereotype. I am hoping you respond.
Hello Ms. Atwood, I just finished reading a book of yours called The Handmaid's Tale, and I got so into it. It's an amazing story and plot. I got a little confused towards the end of  the story with the Historical Acknowledgements, are those notes supposed to take place at a post-Gilead era or it just explains that the story of Offred is just a review of what "could happen if the country took that route towards totalitarianism"? That's what really I'm still trying to analyze. Either way, the book was amazing, and since I found your wattpad, I thought of leaving you this message. Thank you for sharing your stories!
