Writers Unite! Rough Writers Begins on Thursday

df96ed55bcc91437cafaaf2026423046Whether for laughs, to generate ideas, honest feedback and criticism, or just around like-minded people, writers everywhere should connect with other writers to get the most out of their work.

Entering its 9th year on the Southwestern campus, the Rough Writers creative writing club is a place where students can get together and share their work with their fellow writers, whether it’s poetry, short stories, scripts, novels, nonfiction, or experimental. Meeting every Thursday in the Library Classroom on the main floor, the club starts on Sept. 1 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Rough Writers is intended as a haven for writers. It features fun activities that one can enjoy with other writers and offers constructive criticism for growth and advancement in one’s writing. Student writers can also secure advice from published authors and learn how to get their material published. It also gives one the confidence to join in on campus-wide writing activities such as Poetry Slam and Creative Writing contests.

Rough Writers is designated for people who love to write and want their material looked at by other people of like interests it isn’t, however, limited to just those people. “Those who are interested in writing but don’t write themselves can still join,” says Dr. Glen Robinson, communication professor and the club’s sponsor. This is a place that is open for any and every one and is intended to teach everyone to love writing.

Kerstie Macomber, a junior psychology major, shares why she enjoys going to the club.

“Personally, I love being in an environment where writers can bounce their ideas off one another. Sometimes good ideas become great because of the other people suggesting the alterations.” Kerstie thinks the club is at its best when many people join in. “The more people who come, the more ideas can flow. The club is also a great way to relax and take the time to free write out of a busy schedule of papers and textbook reading; it makes time for free writing in school.”
