The Last Draft.
“I like writing, but I love editing.” Louise Dean.
When you know your 'story purpose', what readers are reading to find out, and you have a clear story arc with the light and shade of dramatic change pivoting at the midpoint, it’s a joy to revise your novel. Enjoy watching a publication-ready book emerge.
The stand-alone Editing Course is 30+ lessons by video and text. The Big Edit, for our novel course graduates only, includes tutor coaching with a mix of our workshop and tutor feedback on the second draft and live classes with world-class authors and literary agents.
There's no better place for a novelist who means business. We've got this.

The “Life-changing” Courses with Five Star Reviews.
Most serious writers take courses or apprenticeships with published authors.
Stephen King learnt from John Gould. Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Anne Enright, Gillian Flynn and Tracy Chevalier all took classes. The list is long. Few are the authors who didn't study their craft. Learn from an acclaimed author. Write with new confidence.
“It has changed my life.”
“I have been a binge writer for over thirty years, committing thousands and thousands of words to projects I never saw through. Then I found The Novelry. I signed up to force myself to finish, thinking I'd done enough writing courses and not expecting to learn much more, but WOW a cornucopia of thought-provoking sessions and exercises that resulted in a first draft I never thought I'd ever be able to write. And, just as predicted, I really did quickly start to come to my writing with confidence and joy. It has changed my life because now I really do see myself as a writer and I am eternally thankful that I found The Novelry.”
“What does life-changing mean? I could tell, about two weeks after starting the course, that something within me was surfacing and getting stronger. I'm becoming a different person, a stronger person, because of this course, getting the story down. It was breathtaking in the best of ways. I'm still reeling.”
“I didn’t think I had a story in me. I now have a 90,000-word first draft that I can actually see becoming a book some day. The course delivers on its promise and more. The daily lessons helped me establish a writing practice; the sense of belonging to the community made me feel less alone, and my meetings with my mentor helped me breathe life into my story. It was pure joy.”
