About

I’m MJ Pankey, and I am a writer and founder of Augusta Writer’s Critique Group where I’ve been gathering writers across America together to critique, share experiences, and support each other. What started as an experiment to acquire feedback on my writing has morphed into a deep passion for consulting and editing. I am thrilled and proud that many of AWCG’s members have successfully published manuscripts that I have had the privilege to read and critique.

As of September 2021, I have decided to devote more time to my family and my writing, and so I have taken the leap to resign from my job to become a full-time mother of 3 and self-employed writing consultant.

Mjpankey.com is now more than a blog, it is a professional services platform that offers extended editing and critique services and one-on-one consultation to help you iron out the details of the story you want to tell.

In addition to a blog featuring book reviews and writing tips, I will also be regularly adding workshop videos and training sessions to my youtube channel which you can access from the social menu.

If you like the designs you see on my site, you can have them for your very own through my RedBubble shop.

If you have already consulted with me, either through mjpankey.com or through AWCG, please subscribe, send me a testimonial, and buy Petey a treat to receive special perks!

Happy writing!

~MJ

Why trust me?

I’ve been hosting the Augusta Writer’s Critique Group since 2018, and I have helped numerous writers become published authors, many of whom have left testimonials on my site that you can read for yourself.

I have successfully been published by Brigid’s Gate Press in their Musings of the Muses Anthology and have been trusted by them to edit 2 novels that are soon to be released: In the Grimdark Strands of the Spinneret, and The Seething.

Since November 2021, I have been a First Reader for The Colored Lens, an online speculative fiction magazine that publishes some fantastic stories by amazing authors.

I also read and review ARCs (advanced reader copies) of upcoming novels by traditional publishing houses, and you can read a number of my reviews here on my blog to help you determine if my analytical style is suitable for your needs.

If you would like to see how I work in person before you commit to the long-term, please join me during one of my free AWCG meetings to see how I work and interact with me. You can find a link for my group under Contact Me.
