Discover Why So Many Writers Call The Novelry “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 to fast-track your writing to publishing standard.

Our Success Stories.

Susie Bower took the Classic course to come up with the idea for her novel and wrote it with our Ninety Day Novel course. She revised it with our Editing course. The Novelry pitched her novel to global leading literary agency Peters Fraser + Dunlop. Pushkin Books offered Susie a two book deal.  Sarah Odedina, editor-at-large for Pushkin said: "This lovely novel has the perfect blend of excitement, emotional power and magic."

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.

Build Confidence Fast.


“Before The Novelry I didn't believe in myself.”


“Before The Novelry, I must have started writing six or seven novels. I abandoned them all. I didn’t believe in myself, I could not focus my thoughts, and I second-guessed every decision I made, even in the first draft. The Novelry has taught me the value of patience and giving myself a break. It's taught me how to plot, plan, and make use of every eureka moment. And it's introduced me to other writers and made my journey less lonely.” Adam Langley.
