The Literary Consultancy Free Reads

Applications for the free manuscript assessment scheme for talented authors on low incomes is currently closed. There will be another round of applications later in 2019.

The Literary Consultancy (TLC) holds a strong track record of helping writers get into print. They offer one of the UK’s leading manuscript assessment services providing expert, market-aware editorial advice to authors at all levels.

New Writing South works with TLC by offering a small number of Arts Council-funded Free Reads for talented, low income authors in the south east.*



These Free Reads are specifically for writers who would have difficulty meeting the standard TLC cost and who would benefit from professional assessment.

* The south east region covers: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex.
