Who We Are and What We Value
Jericho Writers began in 2004 when bestselling author, Harry Bingham, set up a new kind of company offering writers expert editorial assistance.
Today, we’re a worldwide team of writers who offer everything you need to help you write, edit and get your book published. From tutored video courses; online and in-person events; one-to-one mentoring; filmed masterclasses and expert editing services, to interviews with publishers, agents and authors – we’re with you for every word.
There are few things that we believe and value above all else:
- We are always on the side of the writer.
- We strive for the highest quality in everything we do.
- We will only offer advice we believe to be genuinely useful.
- We are dynamic and will adapt with our writers as their careers change and progress.
These values are at the centre of everything we do and have helped us to become the successful organisation that we are today.

We pack Jericho Writers with the information and opportunities we wish we’d had – as well as the things our members tell us they most want to know, now.
Four of us are published authors, several others are serious amateur writers, and we’re all self-confessed book and writing addicts. If you’re serious about succeeding with your writing goals, we’d love to help you get there.
