The RSL Review
We publish a much-acclaimed annual magazine, RSL – The Royal Society of Literature Review, which features a wide variety of articles about writing and writers, reports of our events, and the full texts of some of our lectures. Upon its publication in February, a complimentary copy of the magazine is sent to all members and Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature.
It is available through branches of Waterstone’s, selected newsagents and independent bookshops. Alternatively, you can buy copies both of the current issue and of previous issues direct from us for £5 plus £1.50 p&p. Please send a cheque, payable to ‘The Royal Society of Literature’, to The Royal Society of Literature, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA.
Selected RSL Review articles can be read in our Library. Read Michael Morpurgo on children's literacy in the 2008 RSL Review; Philip Pullman, Frances Wilson and Jenny Uglow on the e-book from the 2010 edition; Tom Stoppard and Michael Holroyd interviewing themselves from 2005 and Carys Davies's winning short story for the 2011 V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize.
The 2013 RSL Review is now available.
Highlights include Kate Pullinger on the rise of digital fiction, Don Paterson on writers against bureaucracy, and Timberlake Wertenbaker on theatre and literature.
A brief history of the Royal Society of Literature, by Isabel Quigly, is also available from the RSL office for £10 including p&p.
