Current SJWG Blog Roundup

Compiled by Jessica A. Walsh, Mieke Zamora-Mackay, and Glenn Walker

There is so much talent in the South Jersey Writers Group, and as we've mentioned in the past, so many bloggers. And many of these bloggers produce content on a fairly frequent basis, so we thought it would be a cool idea to highlight some of each month's more intriguing and interesting blog posts and present them here.

Please give a click and a read, and we hope you will like the samples enough to become regular readers. Check them out!

She reflected on her many friendships in her post, “Walking the Tightrope of Friendship” at her blog, Gilbert Curiosities. Marie also reviews several television show for Biff Bam Pop!. This past month she also reviewed The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
