“These courses have changed my writing life and I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

“Within a short time of starting the lessons, I had my idea sorted and 90 days later I had my first draft. After taking the editing course and taking advantage of all the wonderful author chats and workshops offered by The Novelry, I secured a two-book deal and it has been optioned for development into a six-part TV series.” 

– Tracey Emerson

online creative writing course review
“It took me 66 years to get an agent. And it’s been worth the wait.”

“I joined an amazing online writing community called The Novelry. Up until then, I’d got to the point where I’d lost momentum and couldn’t finish anything. I wailed to Louise at The Novelry that I had no ideas and she assured me that after the first week of the course – I’d have something. She was right.” – Susie Bower
