In this episode of Authors' Matters, we chat to Karl Nova, Hip Hop artist, poet and winner of the 2020 ALCS-sponsored Ruth Rendell Award for Services to Literacy. He tells us about how he discovered his love for poetry, how he's still working to encourage young people to get into poetry during lockdown, and what it means to him to win the Ruth Rendell Award.

We also speak to Sarah Baxter from the Society of Authors (SoA) about the organisation's grants for writers, including details of how to apply and the eligibility criteria.

And finally, Owen Atkinson, Chief Executive of ALCS, has some great news about the March 2021 ALCS distribution.
