The “Life-Changing” Writing Courses.
Make progress faster with the right support and guidance.
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. Make sure you read the reviews before you choose a writing course. Learn from the best.
“It has changed my life.”
“I have been a binge writer for over thirty years, committing thousands and thousands of words to projects I never saw through. Then I found The Novelry. I signed up to force myself to finish, thinking I'd done enough writing courses and not expecting to learn much more, but WOW a cornucopia of thought-provoking sessions and exercises that resulted in a first draft I never thought I'd ever be able to write. And, just as predicted, I really did quickly start to come to my writing with confidence and joy. It has changed my life because now I really do see myself as a writer and I am eternally thankful that I found The Novelry.”
“I didn’t think I had a story in me. I now have a 90,000-word first draft that I can actually see becoming a book some day. The course delivers on its promise and more. The daily lessons helped me establish a writing practice; the sense of belonging to the community made me feel less alone, and my meetings with my mentor helped me breathe life into my story. It was pure joy.”
