12 Month Novel Course
£10.00 / month
The 12 month novel course is for those who need encouragement from first spark to first draft.
Over the year, we will focus on different areas of the novel and novel writing craft to ensure you finish your first draft with the first 9 months (but no pressure if you don’t) and then we spend the last 3 months on rewriting/editing and submitting.
This course is for everyone, from novice to pro. We’ll build a supportive community who will cheer you on, will offer to share chapters with you and form potential critique partnerships.
Every month, we’ll have a special guest on for a chat on that month’s aspect of novel writing.
These currently include:
- Emma Read
- Jasbinder Bilan
- Melvin Burgess
- Lindsay Galvin
- Jenny Pearson
- Kesia Lupo
- Vashti Hardy
- Amber Caraveo and Joanna Moult
With a couple more to confirm.
All for just £10 a month, with no long-term obligation and you can cancel any time. (*please note PayPal doesn’t allow subscriptions so stripe/DD method must be used).
Run via Slack – instructions will be sent upon sign-up.
When you sign up to this course, you also get access to the content on the self-editing course by Kesia Lupo, Senior Editor at Chicken House.
