Organisations: For Authors

These are bodies which act in the interests of authors.

The Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society If you have poems and articles in magazines and anthologies then you may well be eligible for the annual payout based on photocopying clearance. You don't have to be a member to benefit.

Public Lending Right If you have published a book you can register it with PLR and if their annual survey detects it has been loaned in the public library system then you will receive a small payment. Authors who have been publishing for some time find that this is especially good for out of print books because they are still, of course, loaned.

Society of Authors A membership organisation that can help on business and legal aspects of writing and represents authors' interest within the commercial publishing world.
