Welcome to The Literary Consultancy, the UK’s leading manuscript assessment service and a resource hub for writers. TLC is recommended by Arts Council England, Literary agents and major publishing houses. Our goal is to provide expert, market aware editorial advice to writers at all levels writing in English, and help them understand how the publishing industry works. TLC’s first manuscript assessment service started in 1996. Since then we’ve added a range of other offers, such as our Chapter & Verse Mentoring Scheme, Literary Adventures writing holidays, writing classes, events and become a part of the new vibrant Free Word Centre in Farringdon.
