The Hosking Houses Trust is extremely proud to announce that our founder Sarah Hosking has been appointed an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. In addition, our Patron, Emma Thompson has been made a Fellow.

They are among the 15 new Honorary Fellows and 29 Fellows created this year (2021) by the RSL, which was founded in 1820 to act as a voice for the value of literature, to engage people in the written word and to encourage and honour writers.

Daljit Nagra, Chair of the RSL.
“In everything we do, the RSL works to bring writers and readers together, to draw people together in a shared love of literature, and through that sharing of great writing to enrich each other’s lives. The new Fellows and Honorary Fellows, alongside our Reading Together programme for young people, all pay testament to the vitality of writing in the UK and give a sign of what literature can do to shape society, and to change lives.”

Huge congratulations to both Sarah and Emma on this considerable honour.
