About Polly


“Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We're in one, of course, but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards.”

JRR Tolkien

The Children's Fiction Course with Five Star Reviews.

It all starts with the Classic Course. The 'mind-blowing' course for those writing for children.

If you believe in magic, and I like to think we all do, then this course shows you how to create it in your writing.”

“Whether you are writing for adults or children it sprinkles glitter over necessary rules and gift wraps essential tools, then Louise Dean, the course director and founder, waves her wand and sets you free. In one of the lessons, she writes “It's about life within life, and reclaiming our lives for ourselves through our senses and ennobling our purpose. ” This is more than a writing course this is a course on how to enrich your life by really seeing what is in front of your eyes. And once you're shown how to see it you can never unsee it.” Trisha Smith.

“I loved the course”

“I just want to thank you for putting in the time and effort to create this beautiful course filled with so much knowledge and information on how some of the most important aspects of classical storytelling - and tying it all together. I learned not just about crafting a story, but so much more. It reminded me I am excited about being a writer. It inspired me to keep going.” Anne Clermont.
