The RSL celebrates and supports writers, readers, and writing of all kinds.

The RSL is a literary charity led by writers. We believe that all literature, from novels and biographies to film and play scripts, matters. We work with schools and prisons because everyone should have access to books. Our events, Fellowships and awards celebrate the achievements of authors, provide writers at all stages of their careers with the tools and resources they need to write, and give readers access to the best writers from around the world. As a charity, our Fellows and members make everything we do possible.

The RSL is delighted to be an affiliate on Bookshop.org, the online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops. We receive 10% of the profits from any book you buy through our page. That money helps to support our work for readers and writers.
