Meet the Members: Jackie Juno

Chudleigh Writers’ Circle has been around for a good while now. Our numbers have stayed fairly stable at around twenty throughout the past decade, but the faces have changed considerably. Initially we all lived in the town. These days, only a handful of us are very local; Chudleigh now defines where we meet, rather than where we live.  We have produced two anthologies.

We are introducing a new, occasional series where we profile members of Chudleigh Writers’ Circle. This week, we start with poet and musician, Jackie Juno.

Manny Lewis was tasked with writing to a photograph of an old man. So accurate and detailed was her writing that the final piece of art was almost a replica of the original image. This week, Manny imagines what might have happened the night these two pictures met. Continue reading

And, as per tradition, the members of Chudleigh Writers’ Circle have been working on their writerly resolutions for 2019. This week we bring you a selection. Continue reading
