ALCS study finds authors’ incomes have fallen


A new study released by UK Authors Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) shows that authors’ incomes have fallen since 2005.

The study, ‘What Are Words Worth Now?’, was based on a survey of almost 2,500 working writers carried out by Queen Mary College, University of London.

The survey found that in 2013, just 11.5% of professional authors earned their incomes solely from writing, compared to 40% in 2005.
