Writing groups. Sounds good but how do I find them?

Hello

I bet its an easy process but how do I find a good writing group to join?

I’ve read enough to convince me that a writing group may be the next thing I need to do to progress with my writing. It sounds like a good way to get my writing critiqued to a (hopefully) high standard and to get it out to more people.

I will (again hopefully) be moving to greater manchester and I’m looking for a good writing group to join. But do I simply google it or is there a place I can go to find what I’m looking for?

Any suggestions would be greatly appriated.

Well thats me for now.

Bye bye
