Our Fiction Writing Courses and Packages

The Novelry offers a range of fiction writing courses. Wherever you are in your writing journey, we’ve got the online creative writing course for you.

Our carefully designed online courses guide writers through the complete career path to becoming a published author. They have been rated the best online writing courses by independent bodies like The BookFox and Intelligent and are the fiction writing courses most recommended by writers with five-star reviews. Youre in safe hands.

So whether you’re ready to commit to the complete journey or want to take the short courses individually, we’ve got you covered with a range of exciting and inspiring options available in instalment payment plans worldwide.

Our program is really simple. It’s a 3-step process, beginning with building a great story to get youir creative juices flowing (with The Classic Course), followed by writing the first full draft fast with our full support (The Ninety Day Novel Course) and concluding with revising that draft to publishing standards (with The Big Edit).

You can combine our online writing courses for the right package to suit where you are with your writing now. Writers seeking our fullest support will choose The Finished Novel Course. Our packages are combined to save you money versus the cost of purchasing the courses individually. But how you take them is completely up to you!

Unlike other courses, our in person coaching allows you to customise your course so that whether youre writing a childrens book, a memoir or a novel for adults or young adults in any fiction genre, you can write with a successful published author writing in your area.

We offer genre-specific online workshops to work with other writers, a buzzing and warm-hearted community of fellow students, an online community for sharing work for constructive feedback and plenty of online resources at your fingertips for an active and rewarding writing life.

Our fully online fiction writing courses all come with access for a year, after which it’s easy and affordable to extend your access and membership from just £19.99 or $29.99 a month.
