Writing is a challenging process for most if not all of us. RoughWriters is the creative writing group of Southwestern Adventist University. We meet every week to share what we’ve been working on and to give encouragement and criticism to help each of us better ourselves as writers. In an attempt to further this experience and to reach those that may be unable to attend, or who are simply curious, we began this collaborative blog. Each member of the RoughWriters club is welcome to share their thoughts about and struggles with writing, or to just give some insight or friendly advice to new writers. As a reader, you may see a wide variety of posts, including chapters of novels, collections of poetry, or short stories that we would like feedback on. Feel free to tell us what you felt and thought about the work.
