My 15 minute call with Laura Williams was incredibly helpful and positive, and one of the most useful 15 minutes I think I’ve ever had. We managed to discuss and resolve a lot of issues in the time. Thanks to the entire team.
John C, author
My agent one to one was super useful – she was great to speak with and gave some very valid feedback, which really resonated with my own concerns about the book. So I am now using that feedback in a very positive way. Thanks for the opportunity!
Sarah. M, author
It was such a pleasure to speak with Ciara. She was warm and exceedingly helpful. Of all the different services online and off, this would have to be one of the most useful supports to a novice writer. Her suggestions were specific and invaluable.
Katherine. D, author
It was an unforgettable experience. It was simply wonderful to have a conversation with the agent and receive both positive and negative comments about my novel. Thank you very much indeed.
Elena S, author
My one-to-one agent session with Viola left me feeling very inspired and motivated to pursue my writing goals. Hearing her expertise and knowledge personalised to me within 15mins was a privilege, and I thank Jericho Writers so much for offering these important sessions. 
Tami. E, author
I had the good fortune to do a couple of 121 sessions with agents listed with Jericho Writers. It has been an enriching experience for me. I got good feedback on my query letter, synopsis and I found that the agents paid attention to detail and gave good insights into what works and what does not.
Mital, K, author
Nat went over and above what was expected on an agent 1-2-1 both in terms of engagement with the submission package and the time taken. Her insight was invaluable and her genuine interest in the success of the project was refreshing. She is an absolute star.
Anonymous
My experience was a positive one – the agents were all knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I was fortunate to receive multiple offers of representation and made some wonderful contacts along the way. Whether you’re looking to approach agents or polish your submission materials, the Jericho 1-2-1 sessions are a fantastic opportunity.
Alina. B, author
We talked about where the story could fit in the marketplace, its origins, and my motivations for writing it and gave me some great insights into what an agent needs in order to sell a story to publishers.
David S, author
I felt Rachel absolutely ‘got’ my story, which is incredible given she’d only read the synopsis and first 5,000 words! I felt like she had really engaged with the characters and their narrative arc. Her comments were insightful, and her advice constructive and sympathetic.
Caroline H, author
My session with Lucy was exceptionally useful. The feedback was focused, clear and enlightening. It was also enjoyable. Thank you, it’s a great service to writers and authors.
