TLC (I don't think the initials are a coincidence) is a leading manuscript assessment service, recommended by The Arts Council and many major publishing houses.
SHORT STORIES max - 5000 words
POEMS No more than 50 lines in total.
The submitted works must be previously unpublished. The competition is open to any one writing in English of any age, who has not had a book of poetry, or novel of over 50, 000 words, published commercially. From the magazines website it looks as though international entries are welcome.
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DEADLINE: Monday 27th September.
PRIZE Three shortlisted entrants in each category will read their work at an awards ceremony at the Free Word Centre in London in November, alongside the competition judges, novelists Joanna Briscoe and Rebecca Abrams, and the poet Sarah Hesketh.
The two overall winners will be announced on the night, and their work will be published in The Literateur. The winners will also receive an hour’s specialist consultation with The Literary Consultancy.Click on the title of this post for more information - especially about what constitutes previous publication
