Benjamin Cook

Says he’s an author, editor, writing coach, animator, artist, and narrator, but that’s just for appearances. Really, he spends the majority of his time pretending to be a robot. Five years ago he created the youtube channel Tale foundry, which is a channel where fiction writers can seek inspiration and encouragement. The show is hosted by Talebot and the taleoids, fictional robots with an obsession for human creativity. Since the creation of the show, it’s amassed a following of more then 230,000 viewers, and even better, spawned a tight-knit community of creatives passionate about building each other up. When he’s not producing videos, Benjamin is busy critiquing and workshopping amateur fiction on his weekly Twitch writing group stream, or writing short fiction of his own.
