What’s On

TLC at Free Word offers a diverse range of cutting-edge literary events such as publishing debates and panelswriting workshops and conferences, literary adventure holidays and great literature live. Watch this space to see what’s on, and browse our past events to give you a flavour of the wide range of our work. If you are a Being A Writer member, do look out for the ‘BAW ticket’ option to claim your discounted tickets. A number of our events also have an allocation of bursary tickets, so please do look out for information on these in the individual event listings.

TLC Events and Covid-19

In light of the recent escalation of Covid-19, regrettably TLC is not hosting any in-person events, to protect the health and safety of all speakers, venue staff, and participants. We remain in close contact with relevant partners in order to ensure our events policy remains in line with government and Public Health guidance and we will inform our audiences of any updates. We wish you all well in these challenging times, and hope to see you at one of our digital events, until such time as we can welcome you back at Free Word.


Each TLC event has an individualised Accessibility Notice, so that you can see upfront whether events are going to include captions (and if so whether live or automated), whether they include comfort breaks, whether you will need a degree of mobility to participate, and whether space or equipment are needed. Please check individual listings for details. If bursaries are available, this will be clearly indicated in the Pricing section. If you have questions about access, please contact us directly.
