The SoA 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.
