Our science fiction and fantasy writing course program

Write an outstanding science fiction, fantasy or horror book with our specialist SFF team for adult, middle-grade, and Young Adult speculative fiction and we’ll help you find a literary agent too.

How do you bring a sense of true wonder to your story? How does your fantasy novel become a bestseller loved by writers of all ages? Where do you start if you want to write an epic fantasy or a fantasy series? How to dodge the tropes in horror to create a fresh spine-tingler? How much should remain familiar and how much should be magical or speculative for a transporting but ‘feels real’ reading experience?

If you’re beginning to write in the science fiction, fantasy, horror or speculative genres (SFF) or you have a novel in progress, our expert SFF department will help you structure and write your story in manageable chunks to spare you from feeling overwhelmed.

‘I have been writing with The Novelry for the last year, and the difference in my craft is astounding! I’ve loved all I’ve learned as well as the fantastic community. I cannot recommend them highly enough—plus they have an absolute DREAM TEAM of SFF coaches.’

‘Writing is my first love, but I’ve never given myself permission to concentrate on it. I’ve been looking for practical help and a kind of forward motion that I’d been missing. I had tactical questions about plot in particular; I can string a sentence together and evoke a room, but telling a story in the way I wanted to was a frightening prospect. This course has given me the confidence, the tools, and the energy to try. It feels like a new lease of life.’

‘I loved all of it. It was all helpful. It was really helpful to go over the fundamentals and it helped validate my approach, confirm my choices, and encourage me to keep at it. I’ve taken writing classes and attended writing workshops and conferences but I’ve never encountered any writing program quite like The Novelry—one that is practical yet aspirational and grounded in the steps to completing a novel. I enjoyed it thoroughly and feel really motivated to finish my book.’

‘Knowledgeable, honest and kind feedback that left me feeling fired up and certain of my next steps.’

‘I took The Novelry’s course as a way of breaking out of my comfort zone and elevating my craft. I was keen to explore other genres but lacked the confidence to do so without some external guidance. The Novelry offers an incredibly thoughtful and intelligent approach to writing, and I still have some of the course’s advice stuck to the wall above my desk as a constant reminder! I received feedback from writing coaches Katie Khan and Tasha Suri as I worked through two novels, one of which was Six Wild Crowns. They offered the kind of knowledgeable, honest and kind feedback that left me feeling fired up and certain of my next steps. I’ll be forever grateful to them and to The Novelry.’
