    I'm not planning on joining, but when I went into the 'join us' tab the prices showed up in dollars. When I came out and went back in again (possibly via a different screen) it showed up in pounds. Btw, American customers are getting better value as ...

    Scheherazade
    "Scheherazade" commented on Harry's Blog "Anyone spot any changes?".
    All just seems so very, very different from the good old writers' workshop. I can see that a business needs to find new customers and markets - and this definitely seems to be targeting the huge US market. But it shouldn't throw the baby out with ...

    'Jericho writers' also brings up info on a TV series called Jericho...and the writers strike which affected it. And Jericho online, a platform for writers and photographers. Think Writer's Workshop was a more unique label, but labels aren't ...

    Agree re pics Whisks. All a bit glossy and corporate. And I like the old name - writers' workshop - makes me think of writers with their sleeves rolled up, ready for business. Jericho writers? a group of comfortably off, perhaps a bit smug - ...

    Morning Harry. I've been having a brief look around the public bit of JW. A few practical observations: 1. Jericho Library / Second Novel Syndrome: The text of Symptom No 3 is identical to the text of Symptom No 4. 2. There is a 'Meet the Team' ...

    Harry has been paying good money for us all to enjoy this place FREE (as in beer) for years. He may have benefited from the resulting free marketing, but he has been paying the pounds that keep the SocialGo lights on, that have enabled us to make ...

    I took a couple of courses (screenwriting and self-editing) and had some very valuable insight (paid for) from a professional author a few years ago. I haven't been active on the cloud for a while, admittedly, but I was rather shocked to discover ...

    I'm still mourning the change of name. Writers Workshop did what it said on the tin - helpful, inclusive and interactive, a learning experience. 'Jericho Writers' has associations of battles and walls crumbling, and you need to be in the know, to ...

    At the very least the cost of and access to the Town House. The full thing hasn’t been launched yet. If the will is there, changes can be made

    And as far as contingency planning re SE courses etc. is concerned, simply saving everything across to your own storage is problematic in all kinds of ways. The group approach is about mutual learning. There’s the help you get with your own WIP, ...

    People are asking me what I'd like for Christmas. I'd really like a word cloud voucher to spend on a critique. I wondered if it was something you might consider in the future, along with tea towels, mugs and that all essential writers pad and pen?

    P.s Hope you and your new family are all keeping well and looking forward to their first Christmas.

    Best wishes,

    J.T

    My phone tells me it's your birthday today, Harry. How it knows, I've no idea. It could have got its apps in a twist and be quite wrong, but in case it isn't: Happy Birthday!
