Discover Why Writers Describe Our Online Writing Courses as “Life-changing.”
Most serious writers take courses or apprenticeships with published authors.
Stephen King learnt from John Gould. Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Anne Enright, Gillian Flynn and Tracy Chevalier all took classes. The list is long. Few are the authors who didn't study their craft. Learn from an acclaimed author. Write with confidence.
“It has changed my life.”
“This experience woke me up inside. It gave me something to look forward to in the lonely world of writing. That is what Novelry gave me: direction. I would recommend The Novelry 100%. Because it works. It is real. And Louise Dean is honest and genuine in her approach. For me this has been a game-changer.”
Laura Krohn, USA.
“The Novelry delivers. Not just theory but a real novel at the end of it.”
“I completed my novel on the 90th day after beginning the course. The Novelry has an uncanny ability to provide material at the precise moment roadblocks and concerns emerge in the writing. With a solid first draft in place, I now feel that I have the tools and confidence to take the novel to the next level. Five stars. Absolutely recommended.”
Geoff Parkes, Australia.
“It’s been a life-giving, powerful experience.”
“If you are thinking of signing up, don’t think twice. It’s one of the best decisions I ever made. After six years of labouring on my book, I ended up with a story that blows my mind when I think about it. Louise Dean is not only an expert on the craft of writing, but also incredibly smart, witty, creative and an absolute joy to work with. Her feedback was honest, yet always supportive. The Novelry is my favourite place on the internet.”
Anna Brandt, Norway.
