FEATURED WORKS

Winner and Finalists in the Monthly Creative Writing Contest at the
        Bakersfield College Writing Center

Each month, the Bakersfield College Writing Center produces a prompt to elicit creative writing work from students. The winners and runners-up of these monthly contests are published in Roughneck Review. Our spring issue will include this month's choices, along with all subsequent winning works and runners-up.   This informal, personal form of expression is too often overlooked in today's academic climate, so it is our pleasure and our honor to showcase these works.
