Welcome to the TLC News page, where we will be uploading stories about our clients, our readers, our mentors, and news about TLC events, as well as coverage in the media and updates on work we are doing across a broad range of areas, from appearances at literary festivals to exciting collaborations with other organisations. TLC is proud of the achievements of our clients, many of whom go on to find publication, either traditionally or in new digital or independent environments. You can find out about them here, and read more in our Success Stories page. You can also sign up to our newsletter for monthly updates on what we are up to, as well as any special offers we may be running.
