Why trust me?

I’m MJ Pankey, 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 editing and consulting. Many of AWCG’s members have successfully published manuscripts that I have had the privilege to read and critique.

I’m passionate about words and the authors who craft them into compelling adventures. I’m honored that you’ve stopped by to learn more about me and how I can help you on your writing journey!

I’m a writer too, and I understand what writers go through in crafting a story from conception to completion, and I’m confident in my ability to help you make your manuscript the very best that it can be. Contact me at writingisajourney@mjpankey.com and tell me about your current project!

A Bit of Backstory

Now that you’ve seen my resume, here’s a little bit about me. In September 2021, I decided to devote more time to my family and my writing and took the leap to resign from my corporate job to become a full-time mother of 3 and self-employed editor.

Mjpankey.com is now more than a blog, it is a professional services platform that offers editing and critique services to help you iron out the details of your story and make it the best experience it can be for your readers.

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 have already consulted with me, either through mjpankey.com or through AWCG, please subscribe and send me a testimonial.

Happy writing!

~MJ
