You’ll learn how to write fiction for adult readers: family drama, contemporary, literary, thriller, romance, detective, western, intrigue, sci-fi, historical, adventure, sea saga, escape stories … you choose. Perhaps your novel will become a best-seller? You won’t know until you try.

This novel writing course is for writers who have competency in the basics of writing fiction, short stories etc. For instance, graduates of our NZIBS Creative Writing or Short Story Writing courses who want to specialise. Graduates of the Bill Manhire writing course etc are welcomed.

Novel writing is fun, but anyone who has started and given up will tell you – it’s not easy to complete one without someone knowledgeable to guide your efforts.

In this novel writing course your personal tutor provides you with step-by-step guidance – from getting a story idea right through to being published. Independent self-publishing on Amazon Kindle, Smashwords and Lulu are exciting new options for today’s writers.

Earning royalties as a novel writer is a great way to turn your hobby into a second income earner. But please consider the money and royalties as a bonus. It is best to write a novel because you want to. We understand that feeling.
