How Do I Get Published? 

There are four phases to the editing course, with over fifty lessons to guide you. From story structure (including the pitch, the midpoint and the big picture) and the words on the page (how to bring your voice to life and how to avoid overwriting, for example), to preparing a manuscript for publication and how to submit to a literary agency (for those who wish to). There are sections dedicated to feedback and to working through the many drafts that typically make up the editorial process. We cover it all!

“The best course to edit your novel.”

John Fox, Editor, The BookFox

The Big Edit – What's in the Box?

The Big Edit course is overseen by our in-house editorial team who have experience working with ‘Big Five’ publishers.

You will have two calls with our editors included in the course. The Planning Session will focus specifically on your story structure, flagging the parts that stand out and those that might need a little more shape. The Submission Session will examine your first three chapters, synopsis and pitch letter, offering useful and detailed feedback designed to ensure that your opening chapters really stand out. You’ll be given an editorial letter to assist with any further drafts. 

When your manuscript is finished and signed off by the editorial team, we will be delighted to submit on your behalf to our partner literary agencies. We’ve had huge success in this area to date, securing internationally renowned agents for writers who’ve graduated from The Novelry. But there’s no pressure; you’re welcome to submit independently, and we appreciate that not all writers are hoping to be published. (But if you are, we can definitely help!)

Reviews of our Editing Services

  Writers Love The Novelry


Such insightful and powerful feedback.”

“I now have a clear sense of the road ahead. It’s plain that my editor is not only an expert in her field, but she’s heartfelt and authentic, and she truly understood my manuscript. The written report is accessible, in-depth and instructive. It’s clarified the intangible, and I know now what will make the novel more robust moving forward. 

The entire experience has been energising. I feel hopeful and laser-focussed.”
