  • Hog's Back Writers
    Hog's Back Writers exists for one reason: so members can improve their writing. Some of us are novelists, some short story writers, some essayists, some journalists, some poets. Some of us have been published, some of us long to be published, some of us write solely for our own pleasure. The one thing we all have in common is that we want to improve our writing. Every member is expected to contribute to the group both by writing and by offering constructive criticism to other members.
    If you want to improve your writing, you'll find a warm welcome at Hog's Back.
    You are very welcome to visit our group up to three times without any obligation to join. During these three visit you are expected to read at least one piece and also give feedback to others.
