Alumni Services

We help our former students get their novels over the finish line and submit to agents.

These services are exclusively available to the alumni of our selective-application courses, including our Writing Your Novel courses. We are passionate about supporting and guiding our student's next steps – from getting novels over the finish line to submitting to agents. Below is a list of services on offer and their current prices (subject to changes and updates).

  • Free submissions support: When your manuscript is ready we'll to help you submit to Curtis Brown and C&W literary agents.

  • Full manuscript report + consultation: £1050 for a manuscript of up to 95,000 words. (For longer manuscripts, an extra charge of £35 is payable per 5,000 words.) Plus, a 45-minute consultation with the editor to discuss the report.
  • Submission report: £300 for detailed feedback on your pitch letter, one-page synopsis and 3,000-word opening.
