Elliot Kim first started university many years ago, then dropped out as a result of health issues and realising he had no idea why he had chosen his subject. Years of work, travel, and false starts later – he decided to return to university. He now studies BA English Literature with Creative Writing, while working both as a cocktail bartender and freelance writer. He is interested in troubled youth, wilderness therapy and the development of masculine identity. He can usually be found experimenting with new recipes, bouldering at Reading Climbing Centre, and/or drinking way too much coffee.

RUWG provides workshops focusing on developing members’ writing skills in a variety of fields, including prose, poetry, and drama, as well as non-fiction branches such as speech writing. We aim to provide a no-judgement atmosphere in which budding writers can share their work. Constructive peer criticism will equip people with the skills they need to become the best writer they can be, and by giving writers a space to publish their work if they wish, we hope to foster a lifelong passion in the hearts of our members for creative writing.
