March is Getting Published Month!

Every year, Jericho Writers joins some of the biggest agents and publishers with writers for our Getting Published Day. Due to obvious pandemic reasons, the Getting Published Day can’t go ahead this year, so we’ve turned it into a colossal MONTH of online events, featuring huge names from around the world. Even better – we're giving all of this completely FREE to members of Jericho Writers. There’s never been a better time to hop on board! 

WEBINARS: Events on thrillers and memoir happening this week (Exclusive to members) 

Join some amazing names from the world of crime and psychological thriller writing TODAY, and Nina Renata Aron on writing memoir in the USA on 20 February when you join us.  



Coming up soon: 

WEBINARS: Getting Published Month has landed! (Exclusive to members) 

See the full list of events included in Getting Published Month, including Slushpile Live, and sessions on everything from agents, through to author funding. All you need to do to access all these events is join us before 1 March 2021.  


BURSARY: Enter for a fully-funded space on our Self-Edit Your Novel tutored course 

CLOSING 5 MARCH. Are you an under-represented writer with a first draft of a novel you’d like to polish for publication? Applications are now open for a fully-funded place on this life-changing course – please do apply.  


FEEDBACK: Get editorial feedback on your novel ready for Getting Published Month (10% member discount) 

Want to attend Getting Published Month with a clear idea of the steps you need to take to get your manuscript agent-ready? We’re here to help on everything from a review of your agent submission pack, all the way through to full manuscript assessments.  


What to look forward to in Getting Published month 

Our Getting Published events are a personal highlight for me, as it was during one such event in 2017 that I met my agent after twelve years of back-to-back rejection. So I am SO EXCITED to see a whole month of online events that could well open that very same door for you. Here’s my round-up of what’s to come.  

As with all good Getting Published events, there are a smattering of sessions focusing on polishing your manuscript (this is, after all, the thing that will determine your deal). We have the brilliant Debi Alper on Managing Expectations (never to be missed), and Helen Richardson on Getting Ready for Publication, which will cover the steps you can do now to help you publicise your book later (you’ll thank yourself for going to that one!) 

We also have webinars about the nuts-and-bolts of getting an agent, including a webinar from world-leading agent Juliet Mushens on crafting your submission package; Harry Bingham’s ever-popular interactive event on elevator pitches; and a special one going through the full process of using AgentMatch (which is included as part of a membership). Add onto that the opportunity to pitch your work to agents at a special US-edition of Slushpile Live and one-to-ones opening again soon (watch this space!). 

Of course, getting published isn’t all about agents. Learn about the other routes to publication in A Case for Publishing; find out about author funding and competitions with Katy Massey, and how other members have done it in our special Inspiring Jericho Stories event.  

You can see the full list of webinars here – all you need to do to access all of them is become a member for a month or a year. I can’t wait to see the success stories that come out of this one. I promise you – they really do happen.  

What are you most looking forward to in the Getting Published Month? Share your thoughts on the programme in the Townhouse, here.

5 Things To Know About Book Publicists
So, you’re getting published. Your agent has persuaded a publisher to take on your book – job done, right? Wrong (and a good thing too, otherwise this blog post would be woefully short)!   There are a lot of people involved in turning your manuscript into a book – and to make sure that your book sells. One of the departments that you might not know much about is the publicity department.   I’m privileged to have a PR director from Penguin Random House as a mentor, and I’d like to share with you 5 things every author needs to know about book publicists.   1) They help to determine whether your book is brought on-board.   Before purchasing your book, a publishing house will hold an acquisi
We're in the Mood for Romance
We at Jericho Writers know how important it is to spend some quality time with your significant other this Valentine’s day…and by significant other, we do of course mean your ever-dependable manuscript. After facing one another across a dimly lit table (it’s surprising how much light laptops can create), you might find that the passion you’ve been holding onto will reignite and boldly take the form of poetic prose.  On the other hand, you may also find yourself staring into the abyss wondering “Can we go the whole hog, or has the time come to start a new chapter?” If that’s the case, then worry not my friends! We have the tools to help you figure out your next best steps. You can check out
