Join 90,000 other writers and become a Member of ALCS. Lifetime membership of ALCS costs £36 (inclusive of the 20% VAT rate). This is deducted from your first royalty payment so you don't even have to pay anything up front. And you won’t pay anything at all if we don't collect any money for you.

"It’s a wonderful feeling for authors to know that ALCS is out there working away on their behalf. Copyright is very precious; it needs the kind of extra protection that the ALCS provides. And the cheques are very welcome too."
