TLC has helped hundreds of writers on to publication, but its main aim is to support writers developing their work and honing their writing craft through structured constructive feedback. Since 2001, TLC has been in receipt of funding from Arts Council England to extend its offer to those unable to pay the fees for its commercial services.
The Free Reads Scheme is open to all writers resident in England through a range of partners. You can find a map of the partners operating in each region and more information about the scheme here.
As a diversity partner supporting TLC’s Free Reads scheme, Shape is inviting disabled writers to apply.
The pool of writers applying to Shape will be decided by them following a selection process. Written feedback for selected writers will usually arrive within 4-6 weeks of it being submitted to TLC by Shape.
