Write-Off in Reverse with Francesca Steele

Join our free online event on writing rejection with author, journalist and host of the ‘Write-Off’ podcast, Francesca Steele

A free, open-to-all event: Thursday 12 May 2022, 19:00 GMT

We all experience rejection…

…and we can all learn to get past it – and even learn to use writing rejection to our advantage.

Francesca Steele’s fantastic Write-Off Podcast – about writing rejection in all its forms – gives a wonderful, honest insight into the terribly strange world of being a writer.

For one night only, we’re turning the tables and putting Francesca under the spotlight. As the proud sponsor of the Write-Off podcast, Jericho Writers are sending their Head of Events along to quiz Francesca about her writing journey – from failing to sell her first book to signing with an agent.

Francesca will offer her best tips on how to deal with rejection and bounce back even stronger.

This event is free and open to all and will also include a very special discount code for Jericho Writers membership.
