The Writers' Workshop.





Join the kindly community.

A Creative Writing Forum Online.

Writing is not something you do on your own. The difference between a manuscript and a published book is other people. You need wise eyes on it. Ideally readers who are writers. We offer a closed, secure workshop for writers to share their work and get answers. Your first choice for beta-readers. All the support, encouragement a writer needs to build confidence and improve quickly. Our writers are aspiring and published authors. Enjoy networking and getting feedback at our closed forum online.

'The Novelry is my favourite place on the internet, and I think it might become yours too.'

— Anna Brandt, Oslo.

'This is a group of writers who are serious about what they do but not about who they are (which means there's always room for a bit of light hearted banter as well as solid support). I have learnt so much about myself as a writer in the last few months and gained so much in confidence. Cannot praise The Novelry highly enough.'

— Sally Miller, Scotland.

'The Novelry provides you the tools you need to get in the right mindset to write a novel. With support, instruction, guides, inspiration, tips from famous writers, that pie-in-the-sky idea of writing a book can become reality.'

— Lauren Passell, New York

'That community has been and continues to be my rock, my inspiration, my much-needed giggle on a slow day.'

— Rashmi Sirdeshpande, London.
