Young Person’s membership

 All those aged 30 and under can enjoy the benefits of RSL Membership for £30 a year.

The RSL offers the benefits and joys of a literary festival and a book club, rolled into one, all year round: a membership for all seasons.

  • Come to our events – over 20 each year – free of charge.
  • Bring guests to events at a discount.
  • Enjoy priority booking to RSL/Man Booker masterclasses with a 50% discount.
  • Subscribe free to the bi-annual RSL Review.
  • Come to our summer party.
  • Receive our monthly e-newsletter.

At a time when the value of humanities degrees are continually being questioned, the RSL proves that literature is not only a worthwhile pursuit, but a necessary one. It showcases the most important minds and imaginations of the past and present and gives everyone the chance to see the world through different eyes. It allows everyone to be a literature student – whatever their age.
