We are pleased to announce that the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) will sponsor the Plenary Lecture – Bernardine Evaristo on Creative Writing – on Friday 7th July at 2.00.

The Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society is a not-for-profit membership organisation, run by writers, for writers.

Their purpose is two-fold:

  • to collect secondary royalties on behalf of over 90,000 writers across the UK and abroad and pay them directly to their Members, twice a year.
  • to campaign and lobby on issues of importance to writers both at a national and international level, to ensure that writers’ rights are both recognised and rewarded.

You can visit the ALCS stand in the Exhibitors Hall at the conference.

Or find out more about them on the ALCS website www.alcs.co.uk
