TLC Scholarship

The Literary Consultancy has announced a brand new initiative, the TLC Scholarship. Once a year, they will invite applications over a three-week period from writers on low-income and/or from communities currently under-represented in publishing. One writer will be selected for a place on TLC's year-long Chapter and Verse Premium mentorship programme with a publishing industry editor, working one-on-one to develop their writing.

Applications from writers with works in progress in any genre of adult fiction are accepted. Writers with or without a publication history are welcome to apply.  

In its inaugural year, the TLC Scholarship mentor will be Ellah P. Wakatama (Editor-at-Large at Canongate), and TLC are inviting submissions exclusively from Black British writers.

Submissions open at 9am on Monday 3 August 2020 and close at 12pm (midday) on Friday 21 August 21 2020.

For full details and to apply, see the TLC website.
