Novel Writing Course

You might be overwhelmed by the idea of writing an entire novel on your own. We’ll let you in on a little secret—it’s easier than you think! By writing only a few pages a week, you’ll quickly finish your first book. We’ll show you how.

Our course guides break down the process of writing a novel into a few simple steps. The first step involves careful planning and organization. You’ll discover that once you’ve laid out the structure of the book and its characters, writing the novel is actually the easy part! We’ll teach you how to create plots, bring in conflict, and craft an effective ending. You’ll also learn how to build major and minor characters that are full of life, emotion, and energy. Each lesson of the course is dedicated to helping you harness your creative ideas and mould them into a publishable manuscript.

If you’ve ever read a book and thought “I could do better than that!” or you’ve always dreamed of writing a novel, our program will guide you towards success.


Student Testimonial

“I started as a complete novice to writing, yet I already have one novel published and am half-way through a second. My excellent tutor puts in a great deal of time reading and critiquing my manuscripts. His encouragement and enthusiasm spurred me to write things that still surprise me. My heartfelt thanks for bringing me so far so quickly.”

Student Testimonial

“I produced Blood Runs Deep as my project in the novel writing course. I’d written novels before, but nothing that was publishable. With the one-on-one guidance of my tutor (Michael Crawley) and the excellent course materials, I was able to break through and become a published novelist. I would encourage any would-be novelist to consider the course. It really helped me.”

“I want to write and tell you how much I have loved this journey with your school! It has been of more value to me than I could have ever imagined! When I started the course I was scared.
