TLC Editor Angela Clarke Wins Young Stationers' Prize 2015

July 21, 2015 | Other News, TLC Talent

We’re delighted for Angela Clarke, who reads for TLC as well as being a novelist, playwright and columnist, who has won the Young Stationers’ Prize 2015. Judges called her ‘a one-woman powerhouse’ and ‘tremendously successful in a very short time.’ Angela received an impressive one-third of the votes of judges for first place. She was praised by the judges as being ‘incredibly versatile—non-fiction, crime fiction, columns, plays, radio presenting, blogs’, as well as being a ‘very committed and engaged mentor’, with a ‘vibrancy shone through’. The judges also noted, ‘She has overcome great disability and shown great empathy for her audience […] and finds time to volunteer for Arts Emergency and WoMentoring projects supporting and inspiring many others.’

Congratulations too to the runners-up, co-founder of BookMachine Laura Summers and columnist Rosamund Urwin. A special commendation was given to Ian Buckley, general manager of Prima Software, for his charitable work for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

We’re thrilled to see Angela get this sort of recognition. She’s an inspiring and engaged editor too and has had consistently excellent feedback from TLC clients.
