TLS editor made redundant after 33 years

29th July 2011

Long-serving fiction editor of the Times Literary Supplement (TLS) Lindsay Duguid, who has been influential in helping many writers gain prominence, has been made redundant after 33 years with the publication.

Ms Duguid helped to kickstart the careers of many authors and poets in her tenure as fiction editor, but she will leave the publication following budget cuts, according to TLS editor Peter Stothard.

He told the Bookseller that the TLS will be restructuring, with Ms Duguid's role redistributed among the remaining staff members.

'We have enormous strength and depth in literature of all periods. The TLS will continue to give the best coverage of fiction of any paper in the country,' he explained.

News of Ms Duguid's redundancy was met with 'shock and dismay' by publisher and reviewer Alex Clark, who acknowledged the work she has done to promote new works of fiction by both young and established authors.

Meanwhile, the TLS arts editor, Will Eaves, is also to leave his post, with no plans currently in place for a replacement to fill his job following his departure.
