Martin leads the SoA's Communications team. He oversees our strategic communications and campaign-based activities, including PR, social media, events and partnerships.

Once again, our Chief Executive Nicola Solomon has been included in The Bookseller 100, an annual list of the most influential people in UK publishing.

Solomon is categorised as a ‘driver’ of the industry, affecting change and ‘consistently moving the industry forward’:

It is tough out there for authors: a 2015 report put a UK writer’s median income at £11,000. Luckily, the people largely responsible for the creation of our multibillion-pound industry have Solomon and the SoA to go to bat for them. This year, Solomon and the SoA’s president Philip Pullman and chair Daniel Hahn have lobbied hard to protect authors from onerous and unfair contracts and greater protection for Public Lending Right.
