reviews writing courses
“The Novelry has been the best thing I decided to do for myself this year.”

“The course as well as the fabulously inspiring and upbeat Louise Dean kept me inspired and motivated and most of all allowed me to believe in myself as a writer. At the end of the course I have a full first draft of my novel and an exceptional kit of writer’s tools going forwards.” 

Erika Banerji, London.

writing course reviews
“Satisfaction and 90,000+ words! If you want to write that novel, there is no better choice.”

“First, it is a lot of fun. Second, it provides a blueprint and a structure on how to get the novel written. Third, it isn’t a grind. There is encouragement to finish, but this isn’t like boot camp where you are thrashed until you are done. And at the end, there is that first draft of the novel you always wanted to write.”

Walter Smith, Alabama.

writing course reviews
“Absolutely brilliant.”

“The course is encouraging, brilliantly conceived, the daily lessons forge good habits, and Louise is a fantastic coach. I completed my first draft on time, surprised myself that I could rise early every single day to write, and genuinely looked forward to the daily lessons. I would recommend it to all fledgeling novelists.” 

Judith Wilson, London.
