The Book You've Always Wanted To Write

  Writers Love The Novelry



It has been a revelation. All my life I have wanted to write a novel, but it seemed like an impossible task. How on earth would my tiny brain tell a story that big? I've written countless short stories, radio and TV scripts (all gathering dust in a drawer) but a novel, it was like the equivalent of an ultra marathon and I didn't have the legs for it. Turns out, I did! I have rediscovered the joy of writing, I am kinder to myself (mostly!) and I love being part of a writing community. The one-to-one sessions were invaluable and my tutor gently stopped me from racing down the wrong path at high speed and helped me to identify the heart of my novel. So now, when people ask 'What did you do during lockdown?', I say 'I wrote a novel' and that feels good!”

“Exciting, stimulating and life-changing.”

Yes, yes, yes! The course makes you search your mind and feelings, and reveals the mental worlds of some of our greatest writers. Most writing courses I have learned about seem to focus on punctuation, presentation and pleasing agents. I cannot recommend it more highly.”

“Just go for it!”

If like me you have been coming up with a story or character ideas for years and haven't yet found the place to set them free - you need look no further! When I found The Novelry I couldn't believe my luck. The courses are produced in such an engaging, contemporary style that you really feel in safe hands. The course content is clear, fun and inspiring and you won't believe where it takes your imagination to fine-tune your ideas or come up with new ones. There are lots of tools that are used to help you glean information from your own life to use in your idea and this I really enjoyed. Don't question it. Just jump in!”
