Imagine if you’d learnt the method years ago, how many books you’d have written by now?

“A Novel is a Moral Journey.”

At The Novelry you will discover The Five F's of the novel form, drawing on the longer forms of literature all the way back to Aristotle's Poetics on Tragedy. The novel is a tragedy, even if it's funny. Because life is tragic, even if it is funny, and we have to face 'The End' alone. A novel is one person's journey to find themselves beloved on this earth. So when we start writing a novel we start with the blindspot which is preventing our heroine or hero accepting their journey. Our ending may exalt them or humble them. Either way they come home - even if for a moment.

“I began your course today. And from your first words I started breathing again. Which is so amazing because I never realised that, for almost my whole life, I have been holding my breath.”
