About the Editors

Learn about the team that keeps Write and Forge running!

Becca David


Becca David is a third-year at Exceptional Minds Studios' three-year program, studying animation, motion graphics, and graphic design.  She hopes to apply her talents to visual development (particularly character design), graphic design, and illustration. 


In addition to her interest in the visual arts, Becca has a keen eye for language and creative writing.  She feels that the use of writing--literary devices, fancy words and the like--are a fantastic tool to interpret and interact with the world around them. Through Write and Forge, she has found a method to do so herself.

I like being on Write N’ Forge because I once took an english class in college. I enjoyed learning literature and inspires me on writing my own stories. Write N’ Forge is my stepping stone to practice my writing skills, and I hope to someday be a better writer.

Round Table Announcer

I’m an optimistic human storyteller that believes in humanity’s ability to overcome, grow and learn. I’ve decided to write for Write and Forge because I love speaking to people through artwork and to me that is what my writing is.

Dylan Paterson


Hello, my name is Dylan Paterson. I am a visual effects artist/amateur film critic and I chose to write for Write and Forge in order to flex my film criticism muscles a little bit while I’m here at EM. Main film interests include sci-fi and old black and white movies that no one cares about anymore.

Ludwig Tan


My name is Ludwig Tan. I am an animator/artist who graduated from Cal State Fullerton.  I hope to gain some more experience to become better in art and animation.  I am hoping that I could get my voice out there and get a positive outlook on life.  I really like animation, especially anime and cartoons.  I also enjoy reading mangas and comics.  My most important goal is to work in the animation industry. My artwork is based on what fans like and original creations that flow in my mind.

Tim Dailey


Tim joined Write and Forge in the Fall of 2019 to help then supervisor Kristin Kucia with the magazine's ever-expanding needs.

Initially, his primary role was to provide input for the magazine layout and provide additional support to Kucia for the articles being written.  Being in Write and Forge has been exciting for Tim because he has a passion for letting the student's voices be heard through the written form in addition to the visual.

Tim continues to oversee the group and provide support in all different avenues of the student's writing as their voices continue to develop.
