Jack Benedict is a Canadian writer who grew up enjoying story telling and considers themselves a storyteller as well as author. “There is something exciting and fun about reading in front of people. It’s an exchange that can’t simply be done by reading the work alone.” In school Jack had always struggled with writing and found they were still able to be the author they wanted to be without needing to necessarily write it down. Since then they have bettered their writing skills so that they match those of their story telling abilities which they enjoy so much.

David Stevens was born in Canada and has never really left it due to the fact that he doesn’t have a passport. As a kid, he loved reading and would devour any book he came across. But he never thought about writing until he accidentally found a program in college for it. Running the gauntlet, he found the challenge to be quite exhilarating. Ever since, he’s been throwing himself into one challenge after the next, passionately writing about all the things that fill his head. He is also head of Whispering Wick's production department.
