The Online Course With the Onward Path

 

So much more than online writing courses, our course graduates go on to secure leading literary agents.

We work with world-class literary agencies seeking exciting new writing talent. Recognizing the quality of our graduates' writing, they prioritise our submissions and respond fast – typically within days. We have secured representation for our writers with agencies like United Agents, PF+D, Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency and others. If you mean business as a writer, we can introduce you to the best agents to get you a publishing contract and even license your work for TV and film. 

 “A wonderful organisation for aspiring writers, and we’re thrilled to work with them!”

Madeleine Milburn, Director of Madeleine Milburn Literary TV & Film Agency representing award-winning and bestselling authors of adult and children’s fiction who feature on The Sunday Times, New York Times and international bestseller lists.

What do Editors Really Do?

With Editor, Lily Lindon

When I tell someone I’m a book editor, I can see their imagination bubble pop up: me, sitting alone in a dusty reading nook, wearing thick spectacles and a black polo neck, using angry, blood-red ink to scratch out split infinitives and misplaced semicolons. 

Unfortunately, this is not quite true. Writers (understandably) spend a lot of time worrying about whether an editor will publish their book – but they don’t always know what that will entail at the other end. Like many creative industries, publishing can be impenetrable and opaque from the outside (and often from the inside, to be honest). I hope that giving you more information about what editors do will enlighten and empower you in the process of getting your book published – as well as humanise us editors a bit. (...)

The “Life-Changing” Writing Courses

  Discover why so many writers love The Novelry

 

novel writing course reviews
“The Novelry has literally saved my life.”

For the first time I feel like I can write and complete and publish a novel and it’s not some desperate pipe dream. The Novelry is not just a warm community of writers helping writers, but also a very detailed, informative, step by step (and I mean that literally) guide to writing a novel from start to finish. And it works! So wherever you are in your writing process, whether your a plotter or a pantser, there’s more than enough material in this course to get you through your writing process right to the very end.”

“Life-changing.”

“What does life-changing mean? I could tell, about two weeks after starting the course, that something within me was surfacing and getting stronger. I'm becoming a different person, a stronger person, because of this course, getting the story down. It was breathtaking in the best of ways. I'm still reeling.”

“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.”
