Welcome to Steel City Writers!

Hello one and all, and welcome to our new blog. Let us start by introducing ourselves. We’re a writing group based in and around Sheffield, UK, a little gang of folks who met on the Open University’s creative writing course, and have since banded together to generally inspire and keep each other on the blessed path to literary enlightenment (lofty allusions, we know).

So, who are we? Since we’re a writing group, let’s go alphabetically:

Andy Stratton – University Lecturer in Computer-based awesomeness.

Christie Adams – Minion of the Computer Overlords currently working on her 1st novel.

Craig Hallam – Murse (Male Nurse) and writer of Speculative Fiction.

Jacqueline Hodgson-Blackburn – OU lecturer in English Literature.

Pete Denton – Mild mannered Civil Servant by day, crime writer by night.

That’s us! People with real jobs and aspirations of becoming authors. But why are we here? Well, our aim is to share with everyone our ups and downs, which hurdles we leap over and which we scuttle underneath, and generally how we navigate the publishing world. Learn from our mistakes. Learn from our successes (To Be Established :D). But more than that, enjoy reading!

    Good luck to you guys. With hard work, you definitely will be great writers. It’s just a question of when and how hard you try. I’ll be expecting great things in the future. Try hard.

    If I can provide any support or guidance in respect of the police, their procedures etc or crime, juts drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do.
