We are delighted to announce that the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society, ALCS, has kindly agreed to sponsor the Marlborough Literature Festival once again. As our founder sponsors ALCS’ support was key to the success of our first festival in 2009, and its continued generosity over the years has ensured the quality of our speakers and the festival programme.
ALCS is a membership organisation for writers run by its Members, for its Members. It works to:
- Protect and promote the rights of authors writing in all disciplines
