“Mind-Blowing”

The writing course with rave reviews

This is a great entryway into the world of creative writing and storytelling! I now have a clear understanding of how to start my novel, I have a way to outline my story ideas, I have a bank of character inspiration to draw from. The Classic Course is truly a world full of wonderment. I had such a wonderful time exploring familiar texts and learning about the authors who wrote them. I now feel I have a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to move forward into writing my own stories!


-Lacy Blake-Vetter

I've loved every minute. I've already recommended it to someone who wants to write but doesn't know where to start. Inspiration, the opportunity to trawl the archives of my personal history, to share in all the trials and tribulations of famous writers and to look under the bonnet of their novels to discover some of the trade secrets of the craft. Life-changing in a big way and in so many small and personal ways.”


-Wayne Silver. 

“If you believe in magic, 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 waves her wand and sets you free. 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 she shows you how to see it you can never unsee it.”


-Trisha Smith

“I joined an amazing online writing community called The Novelry. Up until then, I’d only written full-length fiction for adults but had 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 Novelry’s Classic course – I’d have something. She was right.” Susie Bower.
