A guest post from Gail Renard, Chair of the Guild's TV Committee.
The latest Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) pay-outs should be nestling in your bank accounts, and the print-out of your statements should be plopping onto your door mats now. Approximately £15 million has been paid out to writers of all genres, from TV and radio to books and journals, and is very welcome.
My usual mantra (all together now): this is your money earned from your work, all of which has a value in the commercial marketplace. This is not a gift from the writing gods. So if you have any queries, then please contact ALCS who will be happy to help you, either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0207 264 5700.
And enjoy your money!
