Congress of Rough Writers

Rough Writers - Web CompWitness great feats of literary art from daring writers around the world: stories crafted in 99 words.

Among the writers who work with the 99-word flash fiction format at Carrot Ranch are those who collaborate as a group to bring their literary art to the front page. These are the The Congress of Rough Writers willing to craft anthologies, lead community workshops, and host world-wide writing contests.

Join in each week with Carrot Ranch’s Flash Fiction Challenge and ride with the Rough Writers. You can write with us or read our latest feats of brevity.

The following writers form the core of Carrot Ranchโ€™s literary community and mount words on the page Buffalo Bill Cody’s riders once mounted horses in daring feats and fearless equitation. If you like their flash fiction, look for their blogs, articles, and books.

As we publish Vol. 1, we welcome new Rough Writers to write Vol. 2 in our flash fiction anthology series. RELEASE DATE FOR ANTHOLOGY COMING SOON!

      Oh, I’m so glad it has that sense! We have a friendly literary community and anyone is welcome to write with us. It’s under construction as I have a few details to work out. Keep writing writing with us and you can be a “Rough Writer” too! Not much to it…just hang out when you can. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks wonderful, Charli. I like your vision and am honoured to be a part of it. The map is gorgeous. Georgia’s bio is great too! I’m proud to have been in from the very beginning. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Norah! You must have just peeked in! I finally figured out how to arrange all the bios. At first, I thought I’d long scroll them under the map and link from the list. But you can’t link on the same page in WP. This worked out much better! Each Rough Writer will have his or her own page nested under the Congress tab. I’m so grateful for your continued ride. Honored to have you here, Norah! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Wow! It looks fantastic!
        Thanks for letting me know about linking on the same page in WP. It is something I was going to try. I had looked up how to do it but it required using http stuff and I needed a little more time to figure it out. I still might have a bit more of a look because there are times when it would be useful. I like the way each writer is going to have their own page though. It won’t be so crowded that way. I’ll say it again – you are amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

        That would be useful to know. I don’t think I’m up to coding it right now, and turns out I prefer the alternative.
