Robert A. Badcock
Robert A. Badcock is living in St. John’s but grew up in the east end of Bay Roberts. He graduated from Memorial University with a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in English and History, and a minor in Russian Language and Literature. (The only phrase he can remember in Russian is, “Яа не могу говорит по Русски,” which translates to, “I can’t speak Russian.”) He also completed a Bachelor of Education at Memorial specializing in English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Technology Education.
Robert is currently working on his Master of Arts in English at Memorial with a focus on creative writing. He has worked on short stories, podcasts, non-fiction essays, a radio play, a stage play, and two novellas. In 2020 Robert completed the Mentorship Program for Emerging Writers as an apprentice, with Paul Butler as his mentor. Throughout the program, he worked one of his novellas, titled Mixed Emotions.
Robert is also a Marvel Comics enthusiast who enjoys drawing, painting, woodworking, and using the Oxford comma when others don’t want him to use it.
