campaigning to improve artists' remuneration and rights through a collective voice

Non payment for writers…

According to the The Bookseller author Philip Pullman has resigned as patron of the Oxford Literary Festival, since the festival does not pay speakers.

Following this decision a number of authors have now signed a letter, written by Amanda Craig, calling on publishers and writers to boycott festivals that do not pay them.

We welcome this action by writers – which highlights the issues that ‘artists’ in many different practices are not being paid for their works, skills and experience.
