Writers’ Corner

Welcome to TLC Writers’ Corner, where you will find resources, tips, and practical information to support your journey as a writer. At TLC we believe that it’s best if we can furnish you with the knowledge you need to develop your craft as much as possible. If you do decide to come to us for one of our editorial services, you’ll get the most out of it if you come to us at the right time. Until then, we hope the following will help you as you navigate the world of writing, editing and publishing. 

If you are unsure of where to start, do have a look at our Writers’ Wizard, a tool we have created to help you understand where you are in the writing journey, and what TLC might be able to offer you.

Here you will find a list of common questions about TLC services, as well as about submitting work to agents and publishers, and self-publishing.
