Join us for an informal online session to welcome new Society of Authors members.

You’ll be greeted by Joanne Harris, Chair of the SoA, and Nicola Solomon, Chief Executive, on how to make the most of your membership and a short introduction to how you can get involved with your union.

We’ll also be joined by Pallavi Vadhia and Louisa Stark from the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society who will give a short overview of the organisation, how to take advantage of free ALCS membership and the benefits of joining. After their presentation, Pallavi and Louisa will be available in a breakout to answer any questions.

We will then split into small groups using breakout rooms on Zoom for you to meet your fellow members, chat and make connections. We’ll run two rounds of breakout rooms for 15 minutes each so you can meet a variety of authors.


  • 10-15 minutes – Welcome from Joanne Harris and Nicola Solomon
  • 10-15 minutes – Introduction to ALCS from Pallavi Vadhia and Louisa Stark
  • 30 minutes – two rounds of breakout rooms (15 minutes each) for informal chats with fellow authors. Each group will be facilitated by an SoA member of staff.
