CJ has been an active member of South Manchester Writers' Workshop for several years. This is what she has to say about it: "I joined the group to help keep me on track and accountable with my writing and publishing goals. I was slightly overawed on my first visit by so many people and their obvious and varied talents. Happily, I was made to feel welcome and valued, and soon made great friends in the group. I couldn't have progressed as I have, without them."
