Exclusive for members of Jericho Writers
Exclusive for members of Jericho Writers, our programme of 2021 online events give you the chance to pitch your work to literary agents, ask questions to leading experts and get feedback on your writing – all from your living room.
ALL online events are included in the Jericho Writers membership, alongside professional video courses, masterclasses, query letter feedback and our AgentMatch search engine.
Join per month or for the year to gain unlimited access to everything you need to write, edit and publish your book.
We’re asking you to commit publicly to your writing goals for the next six months, but that wouldn’t be fair unless we declared our own goals too. So Harry and the Jericho Writers team are going to set out their commitments for the coming months, then we’re going to ask about your aims for the coming year. If you’re not sure what you want or uncertain how best to achieve it, then don’t miss this webinar.
