Romance

For a story readers will love forever

Our romance writing course program

Want to write a love story that sweeps your readers off their feet? Whether you’re interested in penning a rom-com, romantasy, literary or historical romance, we will guide you on how to write a marketable romance and help you find a literary agent too.

What makes your main character and love interest feel equally complex and believable? How do you write chemistry that sizzles? How do you develop subplots that add to your story without taking away from the central romance? And how do you come up with a fresh way to make two characters fall in love and keep the reader guessing as to whether they will end up together until that final page?

If you have an idea for a romantic novel or have a manuscript in progress, our romance team will help you through the process of writing, structuring and polishing your novel until you have a story that readers will fall in love with.

‘It has been an incredible learning experience that got me writing when I didn't know where to start. I have an understanding how story works, knowing I can write every day, even on the worst days. I'm developing a belief that I can be a writer. I wish I'd found it years ago.’

‘First of all, the quality was EXCELLENT. I loved the combination of the video material, the lecture content, the activities, the To Do lists, the downloads. Really top-notch! I’ve never taken a course that was more professional or delivered in a better format. There was just so much terrific content. I’m still digesting and thinking about it.’

‘A very worthwhile investment!’

‘I found The Novelry at a time when I was ready to give up, having had several knock-backs and ‘near misses’ with my writing. I was feeling very low on confidence. Signing up to The Novelry’s Finished Novel Course was just the thing I needed – it provided me with structure, support and encouragement. I was inspired to get writing and keep going, and the course made me think more deeply about plot and character, so that I had a finished manuscript that needed relatively little editorial change when I got to the end. The coaching sessions kept me on track and helped me work through plot kinks along the way and I felt like I had a real champion through the whole process. Overall, a very worthwhile investment in my writing career!’
