I Wrote a Novel in Lockdown! Now What? - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

It's been a challenge, but after two years of on-off lockdown you've finally put "The End" on that novel you never got around to starting (or finishing!). So what now?

In this comprehensive course we will focus on the fiction novel and discuss characters and plotting, editing and revisions, plus target audience and markets. We will also cover editors and agents, how to submit your work, and the pros/cons of self-publishing. If you've ever dreamed of being a published author and wondered what comes after the writing part, this course is for you.

  • Paula Roe is a regular Borders Books bestseller and one of only five Australian authors who write for Harlequin Desire, a line published by Harlequin Enterprises, the biggest romance publisher in the world. Harlequin books go out to over 28 countries and are translated into 28 languages in 114 international markets on six continents. Before publication, Paula's writing won and placed in various contests, including Wisconsin Romance Writers Fabulous Five Silver Quill, Magnolia State Dixie First Chapter, Romance Writers of Australia's Emerald Award and the Valerie Parv Award.
