'A chat with Louise is like a big hug.'

In your one to one session with me, we will talk about your story, what makes it work, what makes it great, and we will come up with a writing plan that fits your lifestyle. (This is a short clip from the end of a chat with a writer.)

What's in the tin?

Step by Step Daily Guidance by video and text. 24/7 support. Write your book from 'What If?' to 'The End.'

1. Inspiration and Preparation phase

'Where do writers get their ideas from?' Start here. We prepare the right frame of mind to start in great shape. We begin to build your confidence. We make a writing plan that will work for you.

2. Construction

We make sure your idea is tight before you write. The one secret to a great idea. We open the novelists' toolbox. Creating real people not 'characters', plotting without plotting, finding the emotional heart of the novel.

3. The Swim

Point of view, first or third person? Perspective. Tense. Character and conflict driven narrative. We set the pace for productivity. Writer's block? We deal with that old chestnut fast.


4. Heat

At about 30,000 words, the writing of a novel can sag. Typically writers give up here. Be reassured this won't happen with Kritikme. This is where we fire your energy levels by unleashing your imagination.


5. Enlightenment

Theme. Voice. Style. Purpose. Your writing will never be the same again. Your book will be bolder than you imagined. The big surprise here? That you love the writing life.


6. Home

This is where the structure of a plot happens for real working novelists! With our Kritikme Five F's in place, we deliver you to the front door of your finished first draft. You will complete that novel this time. 


Complete Support

This is the creative writing course that builds a writer's confidence. Draw upon the 24/7 live support as much as you need, on your terms. No more isolation! Be productive and have fun.

Louise Dean Coach

Constructive, useful, encouragement live and online from a Man Booker longlisted novelist with twenty years experience. Welcome to my world. I'm here for you!

The little extras:

Some of the perks of being part of Kritikme.

The Buddy Plan

Get matched with a writer like you starting the same time or writing in your genre for accountability and to cheer each other on. Optional, but our buddies become great friends.

Writers Retreats

One week every season, we book a week off work, down tools at the day jobs and stay home or go to our Manor House to write. A social media embargo in the morning and evening team chats, it's the way to add serious weight to your manuscript.

Sunday Team Chats

Every other Sunday at 8pm, your tutor Louise hosts a live online team chat. We kick off with 'How was your writing week?' A lot of laughter, sharing of tips and advice for the coming writing week.

The Members Lodge

Discounts on writers' products. Meet publishing professionals and literary agents who want to work with Kritikme grads. Fast feedback on your work from other writers. (Standard and Luxury plans only.)

'Utterly brilliant. Life-changing, in fact. The course, the community and the guide, Louise, are the best things that have ever happened to the writer in me. If you're serious about writing a novel, don't let it roll about for 10 years. Write it in a season, while it's fresh and you're on fire. DO THIS COURSE! I challenge you not to fall in love with it.'

— Rashmi Sirdeshpande

Believe me.

(What I wish I'd known as a writer twenty years ago.)

Writers are not born that way. They are typically avid readers. The craft of writing novels can be learnt. Good writing can become great writing. Because there's never a good time, this is the time. You have to write the first draft fast, ideally within a season. Writing is better with the encouragement of other writers. Writing a novel is possible no matter what kind of life you lead. Writing a novel brings new meaning to life.
