The World’s Favourite Online Creative Writing Courses

Have you got a book in you? But you’re not sure where to start? Perhaps you started writing but somewhere in the middle you lost the plot? Do you struggle with structure? Do you find it difficult to find time for your writing? How do you know when your book is ready to send out, and to who? How do you break into the traditional publishing world? You know you can write, so why are you getting rejections?

If only writing was about the writing! Becoming a published author is not so much about your writing style, your life experience, education or contacts, it’s about storytelling.

Story, story, story.

So if you’re seeking to write a book readers will love or to become a published author, our radical approach can help you find your way to The End and beyond. Because we put story first, up-ending the process, leaving nothing to chance, meaning that when you write with us, you're writing with confidence, knowing you've writing a great story.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced writer, The Novelry offers the complete writing journey. We can help you get a world-class literary agent and see your book on the shelves of bookstores. Our ‘life-changing’ approach has earned us more five star reviews from our writers than any other online creative writing school.

Welcome home.

“These courses have changed my writing life and I can’t recommend them highly enough. I secured a two-book deal and it has been optioned for development into a six-part TV series.”


—  Tracey Emerson

As I clicked on the opening video for the course, it felt like I’d come home... It took me 66 years to get an agent. And it’s been worth the wait.


—  Susie Bower

I’m grateful to The Novelry for great advice when I was stuck in the first draft. I’d recommend wholeheartedly to anyone at any stage of their career.


—  Helen Callaghan

“From the initial idea for my novel to the point of getting agent representation, The Novelry were on hand with support and advice. The dream was always to get an agent and so to receive interest from several was mind-blowing – to have Madeleine Milburn within that list was more than I could have hoped for. I’m thrilled!”
