So you want to learn how to write a book and get published? Drill down into the details of the online  writing courses available to complete a novel. 

A great course can set you up for a lifetime of happy and productive creative writing.

  1. Consider the creative writing course you choose an apprenticeship. Make sure you are learning good skills, by a proven authority. You should be learning how to write from a published author, ideally award-winning and with great peer reviews in the press. Ideally, of international standing. Invest in the best as this will stand you in good stead for a lifetime of writing.
  2. What's the onward journey or outcome? Does the creative writing course have links to literary agencies and publishers to help put your work in front of the people that matter. Again, invest wisely here as this could help you skip the slush pile.
  3. Make sure the course will fit into your life. Check that you can start it - and pause it - when you need to, and that the goals are realistic. ideally find a course you can take from home.
  4. But ensure you get the support you need, because novels need support. When you sag, who will pick you up? Has your course got a community of writers like you to cheer you on? Can you get direct contact with the tutor on a regular basis?
  5. Success stories. Make sure the course publishes real success stories from real people. Read their testimonials and reviews not just on their website but in the public domain too, on Google Reviews and Facebook.
