With Kritikme, you'll crack it.

Read how writers like you have achieved their dream of finishing a novel with Kritikme.

'This time two months ago, to the day, I sat down and started a draft. This morning, I finished it. Thank you, Louise! Sixty days. I have you and your brilliance to thank for that. Tomorrow a lie-in then, Monday, the editing starts. Keep going, Kritikme Krew! If this nightowl can get up at 6.30 and write for an hour a day, through redecoration, holidays, upheaval with builders, then anyone can!'

Louise Tucker, London.

'I am thrilled to have written my novel in 90 days. In fact it was 82 days. It was highly motivating to be part of a literary movement whose promise was to not let anything stand in our way. Thanks to Louise and the rest of the Krew for their ongoing support.'

Babar Javed, London

'I'm so glad I found Louise's course, it was exactly what I needed to enable me to stay motivated and get my novel finished. Louise's personal interest and attention to my work is invaluable and knowing that she thought my novel idea was worth pursuing gave me the confidence to just get on and write. I love the daily posts and it's interesting watching an established author such as Louise going through the process of getting her next novel down at the same time as her students. With Louise, you have a fabulous tutor, mentor and friend all in one, and I'd highly recommend anyone struggling to get their novel finished to check out the course.'

Janice Cumberlidge, UK

'This Kritikme journey is first class travel. Your guide knows what lies ahead, but has retained her thirst for the unexpected, she is discovering just as much as you are. Your travel companions become your kinfolk. The surroundings are plush and beautifully designed. The view every morning is new, your energy is high, you travel fast, trust the voyage to reveal what it needs to and leave behind the voices that have held you back. I managed to leave the inner critic behind very early in the process. That's down to Louise. I don't know how she did it, but it's the first time ever.'

Sam Hudson, Surrey.

'You cannot fail! The benefits of Kritikme are achievement, achievement, achievement! Louise's enthusiasm helped me more than anything. I'd recommend anyone to take this course.'

Robert Wainwright, Dorset.

'I had no idea whether I’d find the time to write, much less an idea I wanted to write about. We’re now just over a month along and I have my idea, characters, and a plot outline. I’m writing every day between 5AM and 6AM, when there are no interruptions. I’m reading every night. I feel alive, inspired and creative again. That’s all thanks to Louise. This course has way exceeded my expectations: it’s given me my joy back.'

Lindsey Pitt, San Francisco

"Her passion for the written word translates into every dimension of her work as a tutor. As a teacher I found her frank, exacting, generous, and full of wisdom and humour. She doesn’t sugar-coat the writing process, the emphasis is on nurturing the creative spirit while working never less than very hard. "

Emylia Hall

"Her engaging personality and openness in sharing knowledge and experience made Louise a popular and much appreciated tutor. We all remember teachers who inspire us. I will never forget Louise and what I learned from her."

Mrs AH

"I admired the way you made the students feel there were no barriers between them and you. I admired the writing too, and the character (yours!) and much else - I almost feel that goes without saying. I admire your energetic and diverse writing, your apparently real interest in our students, and your personal grace. I'm very grateful.'"

University Lecturer

"As a teacher in adult education for the last eighteen years and a teacher trainer for the last eight years I have no hesitation in endorsing her qualities as a teacher. Her subject matter expertise was second to none"

Major J.W
Army Major

"Louise is an intuitive and perceptive teacher of Creative Writing with a deep knowledge of the tools and techniques of her art. Speaking personally, I found her evaluation of my own writing to be highly insightful - so much so that I have been able to take an entirely new view of my progress and motivations."

Brisbane Festival Director

"Thanks to Louise Dean's advice and encouragement I am now, for the first time ever, writing every day, and writing with a hitherto elusive confidence. Having read and admired Louise's novels I knew that she was a clever and brilliant writer. What I hadn't anticipated was her genuine interest in her students, her gentle touch in tutoring us to create better stories, and her infectious passion for great literature. Sometimes, our heroes can disappoint, but meeting and learning with Louise Dean surpassed my expectations, and was exactly what I needed to push through my fear of failure and make myself write, write, write"

Magazine Feature Writer

"Louise is an excellent teacher of creative writing. As tutor she was supportive and inspirational. Her passion for good writing and her great love of character and story came across and she showed a thorough knowledge of the masters of English language. Her encouraging and open manner enhances students' learning and provides a safe yet challenging space to further our skills."

Published novelist

"Louise is not only an extremely talented author but also a very capable and generous teacher prepared to share her ideas and methods"

Human Resources Director

"I found her teaching methods and approach to be exceptional. She has an impressive depth of knowledge of the subject of fiction writing, which she communicated in a succinct and highly professional manner. "

MA student Creative Writing Manchester University

"Your teaching style is inspirational and upbeat. Your injunction to apply time and to not fear failure hit a chord with me."

Managing Director

" I really have made the connection again with what I'm doing and am writing now most days and seeing the text just grow and grow which for me is the best way to get to a first editable draft. FAB. I did think you were terrific at encouraging everyone."
