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. So unlike any other course or courses, we bring STORY up the front of our thinking at The Novelry and tackle it once, twice, three times (a lady!)

First, in the Classic course. We start work on the STORY (and plot) showing you The Five F's ® of big stories in the second lesson. Before the course ends, we bring all you have learnt together to show you your plot. (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 chosen 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. We get it down to a one-liner for you to pop up on your writing wall (and admire over the coming weeks to keep you on track). This can save a few bad drafts and wasted years wondering! Because we work with literary agents and chat to them most weeks about our writers' stories, we have a keen idea of what’s commercially viable and likely to be a hit.

Story.

But finally, we will always support YOU to write the book you want to write. Think of your tutor as co-pilot and writing buddy. We'll keep you accountable and give you care and support, along with our wonderful 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 streamline it to be a thing of beauty on wheels, that moves fast and will have impact on arrival - when we pitch your work to agents. Enjoy every phase of this magical time and relax, we don’t leave the success of your STORY to chance!
