Write a Novel is a 6-week online course, with a live lesson every Tuesday, live Q&A every Thursday, lesson plans, downloads, access to me  and a secret group area just for you guys to chat, learn, and ask all the burning questions you like!

This is an intensive course, designed to give you the maximum amount of info to apply to your manuscript, with time to try stuff out, then chat about what is working and what you're finding tricky. And you get input from an experienced novelist, editor and coach with over 15 years experience. 


Who this course is, and who it is not for

Go ahead and book if you are:

  • Serious about writing and making a commitment to your author career

  • Ready to be authentic and vulnerable

  • Prepared to put in the work and take full responsibility for your manuscript

  • Feel nervous about doing a course (that's normal)

  • Are worried your book is no good*

This is not for you if you are:

  • Not really sure about authoring as a career

  • Not ready to share your work

  • Looking for someone to do it all for you, which might look like rushing, putting things off, or not turning up

  • Telling yourself you can't afford it

*writers who look at doing courses and worry their work is rubbish are not usually the ones whose work is no good. The fact you're already here, looking at ways to improve, means you're already in the seeking mindset. Brilliant!
