In conjunction with The Literary Consultancy we are offering up to five poets, prose writers and children’s writers the chance to receive an in-depth editorial report on their work in progress, worth up to £300 each. You must be working towards a full-length work (e.g. a novel, work of creative non-fiction, poetry collection or short-story collection), but your manuscript does not have to be complete.
These awards support writers to develop work in progress and to complete books. These awards are open to applications from both emerging and established writers. Please note, you may enter this award in addition to one of the other award categories.
For this award, we especially welcome entries from people who may have faced barriers to seeing their work progress for reasons of social status, disability, ethnicity and/or sexuality. For more information, see TLC’s website.
