Taylor students Aubree DeVisser, Olivia Lauritzen, Kenzie Nevins, and Rachel Pfeiffer wrote the piece as part of their work in a course on freelance writing. The object of this group writing was to understand working in collaboration on written works and writing for a specified audience within the purpose and guidelines of ACFW.
“I always appreciated having my work published,” Pfeiffer said. “This is the first time we wrote a piece together, but most of us have collaborated with other writers in some capacity before. We wrote the piece as part of a series for the Christian Communicator publication.”
Collaborating on a project was a new approach to writer for some members of the group. The group was given freedom with this project in terms of structure and content choice of their writings in a cohesive theme. It helped to learn communication and group organization in an atmosphere similar to a publishing company, a place where professional writers might wind up after graduation.
“I had never written with these women before but had a great time collaborating with them,” DeVisser said. “The women I worked with made it a great experience and I am thrilled to see our hard work paid off.”
