The Novel Development Plan

Get the structure and support to finish your book

Take your work-in-progress all the way to a finished novel with one-to-one personal author coaching and publishing editor feedback from the world's best-loved online writing school.

The plan includes our two fully guided writing courses: The Novel Course and The Big Edit. You can take them at your own pace and start anytime, with more than 150 inspiring and interactive lessons to guide your writing. You’ll enjoy regular one-to-one coaching over Zoom with the author tutor of your choice to help you stay on track to finish your book. On The Big Edit, you’ll work with one of our in-house editors, all with ‘Big Five’ publishing house experience, to polish your second draft towards publication.

If you’re unsure how to complete your novel, or perhaps you’re stuck, uninspired or downright frustrated by your half-begun manuscript, this is the plan for you to see it through to a grand finale and on to literary agents.

Let’s get your book done.

Finish Your Book with Professional Editors

The Big Edit course is overseen by our in-house editorial team who been editors at the  ‘Big Five’ publishers.

The Planning Session will focus specifically on your story structure, flagging the parts that stand out and those that might need a little more shape. The Submission Session will examine your first three chapters, synopsis and pitch letter, offering useful and detailed feedback designed to ensure that your opening chapters really stand out. 

When your manuscript is finished and signed off by the editorial team, we will be delighted to submit on your behalf to our partner literary agencies. We’ve had huge success in this area to date, securing internationally renowned agents for writers who’ve graduated from The Novelry. 

But there’s no pressure; you’re welcome to submit independently and we appreciate that not all writers are hoping to be published. (But if you are, we can definitely help!)
