“It has changed my life.”

“This experience woke me up inside. It gave me something to look forward to in the lonely world of writing. That is what Novelry gave me: direction. I would recommend The Novelry 100%. Because it works. It is real. And Louise Dean is honest and genuine in her approach. For me this has been a game-changer.”  

Laura Krohn.

writing course reviews

“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.” 

Matti Hicks.

“It’s been a life-giving, powerful experience.”

“If you are thinking of signing up, don’t think twice! It’s one of the best decisions I ever made. After six years of labouring on my book, I ended up with a story that blows my mind. My tutor was not only an expert on the craft of writing, but also incredibly smart, witty, creative and an absolute joy to work with.”
