What's On

The Literary Consultancy (TLC) 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 Notice of Terms


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. We brief all TLC tutors ahead of time in order to ensure that our workshops take access needs into consideration. 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:

Fair Pay

TLC values the time, expertise and Intellectual Property of artists. We believe in fair pay for speakers and tutors, and all of our programme contributors are paid at recommended rates. We look to the Society of Authors and the National Union of Journalist about rates and review them regularly. Where there is funding in place, we will offer free, low-cost and alternate format events (e.g., the pay-what-you-can model). If you are struggling with event ticket cost but wish to attend a particular TLC event, please get in touch in confidence.


TLC Event refunds are available up to 21 days clear of an event start date, and TLC Course  refunds are available up to 30 days clear of the course start date. No refunds are possible after this time. In some cases you may be able to transfer your ticket to another writer; please contact us with their full name and contact details and the details of the booked event or course. Discounted and special offer tickets, bursaries, and tickets to events or courses which involve an application process, are strictly non-transferrable. TLC reserves the right not to run a course if the minimum number of sign-ups is not reached. In these cases full refunds will be issued to all ticket-holders.
