FamousWritersWhoKilledThemselves Photo It is believed that a large number of creative people have some form of mental illness, according to the National Center for Mental Health. Far too many famous writers have chosen suicide to still their demons and end their torments.

This quiz mentions ten of these writers. The accompanying photo of Minneapolis' Washington Avenue Bridge was where poet John Allyn Berryman chose to end his life.

Yes, indeed this quiz deserved the Editors Award. It was very informative. Some might say depressing, but only if you are depressive yourself. I found it fascinating. I liked how you did not make each of your questions about the means of suicide they chose. They were great little bios.
