TLC Advisory Board

TLC is looking to appoint two new Advisors to its Advisory Board. This is an exciting opportunity to join a small but ambitious company at the forefront of author service development.  

Summary: The TLC Advisory Board is a group of dedicated individuals with a wide range of skills and experience, who volunteer their time to guide the organisation strategically as part of its reporting requirements as a publicly funded organisation (we are an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation or NPO with current funding secured 2023-26). We are particularly looking for Advisors with demonstrable knowledge and expertise in the following areas:

o Comms/PR.  
We welcome applications from those with relevant experience in any one of these areas who has not sat on a board before, as well as applications from those with existing board experience. We are keen to work with people who share our mission of meeting writers on the page, and developing innovative strategies to ensure that all writers can flourish. Writers’ creativity and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do at TLC and we hope to find Advisors aligned with these values.

Reading for TLC

If you are interested in becoming a Reader for TLC, please check our current list of Readers, and always contact the office first, with a full CV and covering letter. We currently have a list of 90 readers and are not actively recruiting, but we may occasionally require readers with particular specialisms, as every manuscript coming in to TLC from a writer is hand-matched with its eventual reader. Our requirements for TLC reading are strict, and we will only consider CVs from editors who have worked within publishing (preferably with commissioning experience), had works traditionally published themselves (for fiction/non-fiction/poetry/short stories) or a provable track record within script reading/writing and performance (for scripts/screenplays), and/or experience of teaching creative writing at postgraduate level.
