The ALCS Tom-Gallon Trust Award

Event Details

The ALCS Tom-Gallon Trust Award is an annual award of £1,000 for a short story, financed by a bequest made by Nellie Tom-Gallon in memory of her brother, playwright and novelist Tom Gallon (1866–1914). The story should be traditional, not experimental, in character. The ALCS Tom-Gallon Trust Award is generously supported by the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) and is administered by the Society of Authors. Previous recipients include Man Booker Prize nominee Alison MacLeod, Simon van Booy and Claire Keegan.
