“It has changed my life.”

“This experience woke me up inside. It gave me something to look forward to in the lonely world of writing. That is what Novelry gave me: direction. I would recommend The Novelry 100%. Because it works. It is real. And Louise Dean is honest and genuine in her approach. For me this has been a game-changer.”  

Laura Krohn.

writing course reviews

“What does life-changing mean? I could tell, about two weeks after starting the course, that something within me was surfacing and getting stronger. I'm becoming a different person, a stronger person, because of this course, getting the story down. It was breathtaking in the best of ways. I'm still reeling.” 

Matti Hicks.

After six years of labouring on my book, I ended up with a story that blows my mind. My tutor was not only an expert on the craft of writing, but also incredibly smart, witty, creative and an absolute joy to work with.”
