“The Best Course for Editing Your Novel.”

(The BookFox.)

“The Editing Course is a safe homecoming for writers who’ve been sailing the choppy seas of the first draft. It’s both pragmatic and inspiring - from how to lay out a manuscript for submission, to interrogating structure, dialogue, characters, sentences, words, hook…I know that, once I’ve completed it, my manuscript will be as professionally executed as it can be. And here’s a weird thing - I shall be using the Editing course when I construct my next novel. It’s the only ‘reversible’ course I’ve ever encountered!” Susan Nott-Bower. 

The Novelry successfully pitched our Ninety Day Novel graduate Susan’s manuscript to literary agency Peters Fraser + Dunlop and they now represent her as an author.

The Big Edit.

(For our graduates only.)

We offer a fully managed process to graduates of our Ninety Day Novel course which includes mentoring and our pitching on their behalf to our literary agent friends.

Why? Because they will have an excellent first draft that will make it through this rigorous process. (Take that course first if you're serious about your writing.)

How It Works.

A Unique Process with One-to-One Creative Direction.

Red Light. You will use the course to prepare a plan for your revised draft for Louise Dean to review. (Genre, title, premise, outline, theme - does it hang together? Is it commercially viable? How can we make it stronger?) A 45 minute online working session and written guidelines

Amber Light. You’ll then revise your novel line-by-line using the Editing Course. You’ll show your work chapter by chapter to our fellow writer members for their developmental feedback and constructive encouragement.

Green Light. You’ll submit the first three chapters to me for our second working session. I will either give you clear guidance to develop the work further, or if you’re ready The Novelry will submit to our partner agencies on your behalf.

Submitting to Agents on Your Behalf.

Skip the slush pile (and the stress) when The Novelry pitches your work for you.

We will only submit your work when the manuscript is ready. But we won’t leave you hanging. We’ll give you constructive guidance how to improve the work and get it set for success.

We don’t ask either party for commission.
