Announcing NEW member events!

There’s never been a better time to join Jericho Writers. 

We’re so excited to announce a NEW programme of live events kicking off next week, exclusive for members of Jericho Writers. This is the start of a very special year for members, with more opportunities to pitch your work to agents; more courses from top tutors and more feedback than ever before – all included.  


If you’re thinking of joining – now is the time. Join for a month or save over the year, with no lock-ins or hidden small print. We genuinely want to help you write, edit and publish your book (like we’ve helped these brilliant writers over the last fifteen years!)

ALSO: Members get access to... AgentMatch – our literary agent search engine. Masterclasses – filmed live at events. Features – with behind-the-scenes interviews with authors, agents and publishers. And Snapshots – quick five-minute tips. 



Exciting things are happening behind-the-scenes... 


Thanks to the tremendous success of the Summer Festival of Writing, we’re able to invest in some very exciting things – all soon to be free and forever available to our members.  


To kick things off, we’ve brought in Anna Burtt as our new Events Manager whose sole job is to bring experts to your door. She’s created a programme of 5+ live webinars every single month for the rest of the year, including old favourites and brand-new names. Going forward into 2021, Anna will be adding more and more live events to the membership, so you can connect with experts from all over the world. This all kicks off with a special ‘Ask Jericho Anything’ webinar on 14 September. 


One thing I’ve noticed when speaking to members is that not all of us learn the same way. A key thing I’m working on now is how to bring non-video content into the membership for next year, including transcripts for our key videos. I’m also looking to bring some new video courses to 2021 (perhaps with some exciting names attached – watch this space!). And – because we all love the chance to get feedback on our work – we’re looking into how to make this available exclusively to members, too. 


Change is coming and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Expect to see updates to the website as we introduce more stuff and make it super-easy to navigate. Until then – what do you want to see in the membership in the next year? How can we help you take your writing to the next level? Sign up for free to the Townhouse and share here.

Why hate poetry?
  •  · 
  •  · Miriam
Poetry’s the marmite of literature. A divisive subject with one side of the scale, I unhappily admit, heavily tipped. I think it’s safe to say that most people hate poetry, an awful thing to hear if like me, you love it.   Why all the hate?  Maybe because poetry’s seen as moth-eaten and archaic, to be shelved alongside cobblestone heavy history books. A sloth-like slow drag lacking in thrill and pace. Or maybe, it’s because people think poetry equates effort. A poem is evidence of someone having made an effort to try and be clever. To unashamedly try to make something beautiful. It follows then that reading a poem can make you feel closed off, feel dumb when you don’t understand, even after
