The Literary Consultancy is delighted to welcome six new partners onto its Arts Council England-funded TLC Free Reads scheme for the period 2023-2026.
The TLC Free Reads scheme is the only nationally funded programme offering professional writing development bursaries in partnership with all of the country’s literature development agencies. It is co-ordinated by TLC, the UK’s longest standing editorial consultancy, to support low-income, talented writers writing across all genres and formats in the English language.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our regional partners for their work in partnership with TLC Free Reads. We are immensely proud to have secured funding to continue with this vital scheme for the period 2023-26.
