Am I eligible to join the SoA?

We support authors of all types (from novelists, illustrators and poets to scriptwriters, translators and games writers) at every stage of their career. Some of our members are well-established household names, but just as many are at the start of their careers, waiting for their first publication or deal.

What happens next?

Once you’ve purchased your membership we’ll ask you to complete a short form in a Word document to help us get you set up on the system. This will show us what stage you are at in your career as an author to show how we might best be able to support you. It will also give you an opportunity to sign up to one or more of our professional groups, including the Children’s Writers & Illustrators Group, the Poetry & Spoken Word Group, the Translators Association and the Scriptwriters Group.
