Are you a Christian with aspirations to write a novel?

Do you need some direction and support to make that a reality?

We understand. Writing a novel (and doing it well!) can be a daunting process. We’re here to help.

We believe your voice should be heard. Our Arche Year course is available now streaming on-demand. This comprehensive, 25-class program will guide you, week by week, through the novel writing process and help you build a professional author’s platform.

If you can devote 6-10 hours per week to the course and follow the course guidance, you will complete a novel manuscript you’ll be proud of in less than nine months as well as establish a professional author’s marketing platform.

Students of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels are encouraged to apply.

Who Will Benefit from Arche Year

Any aspiring Christian novelist who is serious about doing the work will benefit tremendously from Arche Year. Our students have absolutely exceeded their expectations, year over year, across the board.

We’re open to Christian writers of all types. As C.S. Lewis famously said, “The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing good literature.” We agree. This course is open to all Christian writers who want to see their values embedded in their work. We encourage you to push the boundaries of “Christian” literature.

We are serious that you need to be serious about your writing. If you’re not ready to put in the time, the program will not work. When we say up to ten hours a week, we mean it. You’re going to need all ten hours most weeks.

How does it work?

The pre-recorded video classes are available on-demand. There are 25 classes, most ranging in length from 90-120 minutes. You can watch them at any time, and you may review them as many times as you’d like. There are also downloadable worksheets, links, and other resources, all available for free.

You’ll also be able to ask questions in our online forum or in the dedicated, private Facebook group.

Every year we publish a recommended schedule to watch the courses. Watching them at the same time as the rest of the group typically helps students stay successful in the course. You’ll gain a real sense of camaraderie with your peers, and you’ll be asking similar questions on the support platforms (and benefitting from your peers’ questions as well).

This year the recommended schedule begins on October 14, 2021. But you may start whenever you like and either catch up, or watch at your own pace.

What’s the Arche Year Cohort?

The Arche Year Cohort is an amazing School of Kingdom Writers part-time program that brings one-on-one and small group support to the Arche Year course. If you apply and are accepted to the Cohort, you’ll watch the videos on-demand according to the recommended schedule, and you’ll also get weekly support from Brad Pauquette, the founder and lead teacher of the School of Kingdom Writers.

The Cohort takes the amazing on-demand course and adds a real level of professional accountability, individualized attention, and spiritual support.

You must apply to the 2021-22 Cohort by September 15, 2021. Learn more and apply here. There’s no cost to apply.
