TLC will be at the Author Lounge at this year’s London Book Fair everyday between 11th – 13th April. TLC director, Rebecca Swift will hold a Q & A session about how TLC works, and answer questions about the publishing industry. Jess Porter or Solvej Todd will be on hand to help and answer any questions.
This year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the LBF and the fair will offer a wide variety of exciting events, lectures and discussions for both writers and industry professionals. Writers can come and hear Julia Donaldson talk about writing for children, join in a cookery demonstration at the Book Book Corner and finish with an interview with a celebrated author in the English PEN Literary Cafe.
The Free Word centre will also have a stand representing itself and all its resident organisations. Click here to order tickets in advance and avoid the queues.
The Literateur and TLC were delighted to announce the winners of our joint competition on 11 November.
It was truly an enjoyable evening with readings by the judges, a discussion about the future of writing and, of course, our awards ceremony. All six of the winners were given a chance to read their short story or poem in front of a fully packed lecture theatre at the Free Word Centre. The winning submissions will be published in The Literateur and the winners will also receive an hour’s specialist consultation with The Literary Consultancy.
Our three judges, novelists Joanna Briscoe and Rebecca Abrams, and the poet Sarah Hesketh, found it very difficult to narrow it down to just six winners. Click here to read the winning submissions.
Alison Key, Short story, This Changes Everything
Uschi Gatward, Short Story, Birth Plan
Adam Steiner, Short Story, Living Through Saccharin
Selena Wisnom, Poetry, Mushrooming
Clémence Sebag, Poetry, Inventory
Tom Bailey, Poetry, Notes to the Construction of Beverley Minster
We would like to thank The Literateur editor Kit Toda, everyone who submitted their work and those who attended our awards evening.

In celebration of ‘Bright Star’, the new Vintage edition of Complete Poems and Selected Letters of John Keats, the Literary Consultancy at the Free Word Centre, provided an intimate evening of poetry and music.
Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish, stars of Jane Campion’s new film ‘Bright Star‘, read a selection of Keats’ poems and letters in a soul-warming setting. Mark Bradshaw, the film’s composer, performed with a small ensemble, recreating the haunting music from the film’s soundtrack.
