      J.net I had six months to go on mine and received an email from Harry, inviting me to join the new Agent Hunter thing for free for a full 12 months if I clicked on the supplied link. I'd contact them and ask where your email is.

      Squidge Might be worth suggesting to JW? Agent Hunter was open to anyone, wasn't it? I was on it for a while but decided against it in the end.

      Scheherazade I did but they advised taking a month sub to Jericho to access agent match - but when I had a 12 month sub to agent hunter for - I think - £12 that doesn't seem like such a good deal. It's something you would want ongoing access to - not for a month. Also - there are no blurbs on the agents going to York on the jericho website -

      J.net Oh Lordy, they really are intent in pushing customers away, aren't they? A 12 month sub to Jericho of £150 (their special offer!) so that you can access Agent Hunter? That's over ten times what you were paying. That's just plain greedy.

    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 ...

    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 - ...

    Agree - and I can't believe the cloud didn't pay its way, indirectly. I bet at least 70 % of regular users paid for another writers' workshop service - and most of those more than one. As well as providing their data -as consuming writers and ...

    I'm sure York would be a success with our without the world cloud. But I can't help thinking the sense of old cloudie friends meeting up has added to the perception of it being a friendly , dynamic event.

    What about those of us who have already paid an annual subscription for agent hunter? Also - when we paid for SE course - part of the deal was that you had access to the course notes - and the other students for ever - what happens with that now?

    Thank you, kind lady! Have doubts whether it will get anywhere, but it was a really good exercise in pruning and hopefully improving a short story I wrote years ago! Have a lovely day. (By the way, can I be curious and ask what your current enigmatic status stands for?)

    Sche, I may have missed it but it doesn't seem to me that you've had much of a clap on the back for winning Pitch Perfect. You did win, didn't you? So have a huge round of applause. Well done.
