The Society of Authors in Scotland (SoAiS) is a regional group of the Society of Authors. If you have a Scottish postcode you are automatically added to the SoAiS when you join the SoA.
The SoAiS organises a varied and busy calendar of activities through a committee of volunteers. Group activities are reported in the SoA’s quarterly magazine, The Author. There is also discussion in their Facebook group.
SoAiS members can take advantage of a number of exclusive benefits, such as events and special discounts.
The SoAiS is a network member of Publishing Scotland, and together the two organisations have produced a good practice covenant between authors and publishers in Scotland. The SoAiS is also represented at meetings of the Literature Forum and the Scottish Parliamentary Cross Party Group on Culture and Media.
