‘A big eye-opener’
The writing course with rave reviews
‘The Novelry’s Advanced Course came along at exactly the right moment for me, when I was battling with low self-confidence and a first draft I didn’t know what to do with. It’s helped me regain perspective, focussed me and given me back my belief in my ability to write. I feel ready and able to tackle my next draft now, will all the new tools I’ve acquired in my belt, and I know I’ll be going back over some of the sessions to reinforce them.’
—Laura Pearson, author
‘I thoroughly enjoyed having a process to follow so that it didn’t feel like I was doing it alone. 70k words in 4 months and it felt really easy getting the complete story told.’
—Kate Gunn, author
‘Invaluable. A big eye-opener. I’ve done many writing courses, many of which rely heavily on the workshopping method. The Novelry offers far more. I’m the author of over 170 books. The Novelry picked me up when I was floundering, gave me direction, gave me a safe place, and gave me permission to find my own magic.’
—Candice F. Ransom, author
