Course policies and procedures

How do I contact you? Where are you based?

You can email us at hello@thenovelry.com and we’ll respond quickly to your question.

Because publishing is global so are we! We are located in the UK and the USA, with offices in London and New York, and our companies are registered in both the United States and England and Wales. You can find our details at our Contact page here. We offer annual parties in New York and London and we coach and work with writers worldwide in all time zones.

What’s your Data Protection, Privacy and AI policy? How do you preserve my copyright?

We Decline to Use AI Generative Tools

We do not use AI generative tools as a company and have opted out of such services with suppliers such as Zoom for example. We do not use Smart Recording or any other AI-assisted tools.

Data Protection and Copyright

We have a company-wide policy to protect and safeguard your data, and do not retain your content or material outside of secure company systems longer than is needed for us to work with you on it. We delete your data after your account is closed, and conduct a regular data audit and cleaning policy on a quarterly basis.

As a company, we take matters of copyright and confidentiality very seriously. Please do not send your material to any other parties unless you have confidence they will not share it. No member of our staff may share your material with any other party without your permission.

What’s your admissions and refund policy?

We operate a people before profit policy as a way of maintaining a happy and supportive community for all of our writers. You’ll find The Novelry a safe place. See our terms and conditions here

Happy Writing Guarantee. We offer a 7-day refund policy on all courses.

If you are having problems checking out, your browser is most likely not up-to-date. You can update it in a click at whatismybrowser.com.

You can review our course prices with a side-by-side comparison table at our Pricing page here.

What if I need to stop writing during my year? Can I extend my course?

You have a year’s access to your class or course from the date of purchase.

The courses are self-paced so you can take the lessons in your own time, your way. You can schedule your coaching sessions to suit you too.

We cannot pause or freeze subscriptions but don’t worry! You can easily and affordably extend access to your program with our graduate plans or remain as a member for just $29.99 / £24.99 a month or $299 / £249 a year. Most of our members do because they love writing with The Novelry.

Course information and structure

Is the writing group community available in my time zone?

Our writing community is online worldwide 24/7. Wherever you are you’ll find writing buddies online when you’re seeking good company. It’s a hive of friendly writerly encouragement, full of advice, tips and news, and you can get feedback on your work when you’re editing your novel too at our workshop. You’ll be invited to join the closed secure community when you join us on our courses or classes. With our Catch Up TV service, you can watch back all recorded guest events at a time to suit you. Find out more about our community here.

What live group writing classes do you offer?

We offer weekly writing classes for all writers at any stage, including genre workshops and our Story Clinic hosted by a writing mentor. Come and meet your fellow writers. We offer live sessions with bestselling authors and industry professionals every other week, and the monthly Team Chat with our founder.

Don’t worry if you miss a special guest event class. They are available recorded as part of our Catch Up TV at our community. You’ll love our vast library of recorded classes with world-famous writers like Kristin Hannah, Yann Martel, Tayari Jones, Val McDermid, Paula Hawkins, David Nicholls and many more.

What kind of writer are these courses suitable for?

Our typical writer member has wanted to write a book for a long, long time. They are heavy readers, very often cat or dog-lovers, and they are very curious about the way humans work too! We know writers are sensitive souls, that’s why we’ve created such a warm and nurturing environment. We’re writers too! Writers at any stage of their journey will flourish at The Novelry.

We welcome beginners. (No bad habits!) We are open to all and non-selective as a principle because we know we can teach. What do you need? Probably a love of reading is all.

If you have a novel you have started or abandoned, you will find all you need to stay on track to complete it this time.

Often writers come to us after taking courses elsewhere, and we receive many former members of Faber Academy or Curtis Brown at The Novelry. We are the place writers come to write through to achieving their goals because our focus is wholly on you and your story. Your success means the world to us.

Which course is right for me?

For guidance all the way from coming up with a page-turning idea through to completing your book to publishing standard, our most popular plan is The Finished Novel Course.

It’s our online alternative to a Creative Writing MA or MFA with a structured approach to writing a book with full coaching and editorial support. The lessons are self-paced and will fit into a busy lifestyle. You’ll be able to choose your own tutor from our award-winning and bestselling writing coaches based in the USA, Canada and the UK and schedule working sessions at your convenience. You’ll work with publishing editors, formerly of Penguin Random House, Macmillan, Hachette and more, to raise your book to publishing standard, with a full manuscript assessment included. When your story is ready we will present it to our trusted literary agencies who are keen to see our graduates’ work.

As a member, you’ll have access to our regular writing classes on a weekly basis with bestselling authors. You’ll enjoy the worldwide community of writers like you in every time zone. It’s a happy place and you’ll find a warm welcome. 

You can view our courses side by side and choose the course that’s right for you here.

How much time will I need to set aside?

An hour a day. You can take the classes at your own pace and spend as much time as you like writing after the lesson. Writers LOVE the lessons and binge them, but we suggest one lesson a day, which will take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, or as long as you wish to allow. The lesson is given by video and text with downloads online and it’s timed to coincide with where you’re at in your writing process. You’ll need to set aside an hour a day for your writing when you begin to put pen to paper. It’s one hour just for you and you’ll come to love this special time.

One hour a day? You deserve it.

When does the writing course start and how long do I have it for?

Our self-paced writing classes and courses start the moment you sign up. Ready when you are!

You have a year’s access to your class or course but can easily and affordably extend access to your program with our extension plans for a maximum price of $55 or £45 a month (less if you buy an annual plan) or remain as a member for just $299 / £249 a year.
