Story.

We go hard, heavy and early on story at The Novelry because we know it’s vital to your success. Readers don't buy fiction to be educated, they want stories that move them, excite them and make them feel; to escape reality for a while. 

First, with the Classic course, we start work on the STORY (and plot) showing you The Five F's ® of big stories. You'll walk in the footsteps of the bestselling authors of all time and create a unique and original idea. (Hello STORY! Well, look at you now!)

Story.

Then, in the Ninety Day Novel course, we begin by hunkering down on the STORY for the first seven days of the course, eyeballing it from every angle.

You won’t start writing until you’ve had your first working session with your tutor when we throw the story about and look for exciting opportunities. We tighten it so you're clear what it is that makes this story a cracking read. Because we work with literary agents, we have a keen idea of what’s commercially viable and likely to be a hit.

Story.

We will always support you to write the book you want to write. We'll keep you on track and give you care and support, along with our writing community who will keep you smiling and reassure you that what you're feeling and doing is - well - more or less normal. 

We pull STORY back into sight in the Big Edit course where we revise the work to be a thing of beauty likely to secure a publishing deal. Enjoy every phase of this magical year and relax, we don’t leave the success of your STORY to chance.

“You don't put your life into your books, you find it there.”
