The Literary Consultancy.
Every writer deserves a good editor
The Literary Consultancy (TLC) was set up in 1996 as the first editorial consultancy of its kind, offering professional feedback to writers at all levels through their core manuscript assessment service. Since then, they have sent detailed feedback reports to thousands of writers on a range of writing projects: across novels, memoir, poetry, short stories and scripts, from beginner writers to well-known names. An expert team of readers is made up of world-class writers, tutors, and publishing professionals who, guided by TLC, write reports which help writers better understand their work, how to improve it, and where it might sit in the changing landscape. Alongside the assessment service, TLC also offers a popular mentoring programme, Chapter and Verse, with both online and face-to-face options available, and a range of literary events, all carefully designed to give additional support and inspiration to writers.
