The Literary Consultancy is the UK's first and leading editorial and manuscript assessment service, working nationally and internationally since 1996. TLC provides professional feedback to writers at all levels, from aspiring to professional, from a team of 90 editors, covering fiction, non-fiction, memoir, short stories, poetry and scripts. We also refer to trusted, qualified copy-editors, proofreaders and ghostwriters on a case by case basis. TLC's mentoring scheme, Chapter and Verse, supports writers toward completing ongoing book-length projects. We also host literary events for writers at our base, the world-renowned Free Word Centre in London, and an annual overseas writing retreat.
