Write-Off in Reverse with Francesca Steele

Join our free online event on writing rejection with author, journalist and host of the ‘Write-Off’ podcast, Francesca Steele

We all experience rejection…

…and we can all learn to get past it – and even learn to use writing rejection to our advantage.

Francesca Steele’s fantastic Write-Off Podcast – about writing rejection in all its forms – gives a wonderful, honest insight into the terribly strange world of being a writer.

For one night only, we’re turning the tables and putting Francesca under the spotlight. As the proud sponsor of the Write-Off podcast, Jericho Writers are sending their Head of Events along to quiz Francesca about her writing journey – from failing to sell her first book to signing with an agent.
