Local groups

The SoA has a number of local groups based across the UK and abroad with the aim of bringing members together. They're a great way to meet fellow authors in your area, share knowledge and support one another. Local groups are run by members for members and hold regular informal meetings. New members are always welcome so pop along to your next local meeting!

Each group is run by a volunteer local organiser. Details of upcoming events are emailed out to members in the area and are listed on the events section of this website. Please contact us to be added to the relevant group mailing list.

Please note: due to current restrictions on gatherings and meeting people from outside your household, local group activity is now taking place online for the foreseeable future.

Setting up a local group in your area

Any SoA member can start their own local group and we can help you get up and running. If you're interested in setting up a group in your area, please read our local group guidelines and contact us with any questions.
