Self Editing Course Enrolment Open Now

Self Editing courses for writers, starting October 2024

Self Editing

Take your writing to the next level with TLC 

TLC is delighted to announce the return of our two self editing courses, developed in partnership with expert tutors. Starting in October, these courses are for writers who have a work in progress or completed manuscript and are working on either a novel, or a piece of full length creative non fiction.

Self Editing Non Fiction with Xanthi Barker begins October 14th

Self Editing Fiction with Jon Barton begins October 23rd

This is one of the best courses I have ever had the pleasure to take. It is so refreshing to be guided with real kindness and generosity of spirit through a daunting part of the writing process. When you are taught to evaluate your own writing, rather than feeding you information, the result is growth of confidence and a sense of resilience. I truly recommend this course.”

“I thought I could already edit pretty well but Xanthi’s experience and the canny way in which the course was presented really opened up new possibilities. I now feel very confident that I have exactly the tools I need to edit my work. I am actually deeply surprised that so much could be learned about this! All in all an excellent course that did exactly what it said it would plus, unexpectedly, so much more too!”
