Tom-Gallon Trust Award

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.[1] Previous recipients include Man Booker Prize nominee Alison MacLeod, Simon van Booy and Claire Keegan.
