Being Left Handed

Left Handed Writers

"The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword"

left handed writers

Okay, I'll agree that a lot of us southpaws are challenged when it comes to penmanship. However, when it comes to creative writing, there have been some very impressive Left Handed Writers Alice's Adventures In Wonderland The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Time Machine and  Jaws are but a few literary selections that have been penned by lefties.

What girl has not imagined herself stepping through a looking glass into a magical world. Thanks to lefty Lewis Carroll, generations of children have done just that  by reading  Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. The book was first published in 1865 and tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a world of fantasy filled characters. The title is now commonly known as  Alice In Wonderland.  Only the creative brain of a southpaw could have inspired such a literary classic.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is considered to be the Great American Novel. Written by American author Mark Twain in 1884, this novel tells of two young boys adventures in the deep south. Mark Twains humor in his books and speech gained him popularity with presidents, artists and royalty (and he too is left handed).


Our next left handed author is H.G. Wells. He created dozens of fiction and non-fiction books.  The Time Machine published in 1895,created a world of time travel by using a machine to transport a person to specific times in history (past & present). This book alone is considered responsible for thousands of science fiction writings.

With the development of such things as the typewriter and today's word processing software, penmanship is no longer a handicap for left handed writers. So let your left handed imagination run wild and put it on paper (or computer) for the world to see. You could be the next literary giant of today for being left handed.
