Most of the RLF’s income has come from authors, who bequeathed some or all of their literary estate for the benefit of future generations of writers. The RLF has been a beneficiary and custodian of the estates of, amongst others, Colin MacInnes, Somerset Maugham, A.A. Milne and Arthur Ransome. If you want to know more about how an estate can have a lasting impact through the RLF, please contact our team.
