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