The Literary Consultancy is excited to be working on an innovative showcase for its writing talent, initially in association with Staple Magazine. See TLC Showcase Introduction for more on the inception of the Showcase and please see below for where it is now.

Once a month we will highlight the work of one author whose work we believe deserves a platform, whether simply because our readers felt it worth championing, or whether we have helped the writer on to commercial publication.

If you enjoy reading our Showcase, please feel free to share, and let us know on Facebook or on Twitter.

Lauren Nathan-Lane

“The book explores a different topic each chapter and brings a mix of humour alongside the sometimes challenging topics and themes. Lauren writes with the main hope that those who are either new to long term illness or are long term veterans to illness, will feel an affinity and perhaps, feel less alone. This particular extract questions what self-care might look like for those who are ill or struggling in other ways.” From the Introduction


“Self-care when you’re long term sick is incredibly important but sadly the idea of self-care seems to have been hijacked by the more toxic side of ‘wellness’. In this chapter I’ll discuss what self/care might look like if we move away from the expectation of always having to self/care alone and move more towards mutual aid and community care.” From ‘It’s time we got more radical about care’– included in the showcase
