Authors North

SOA_col_Authors_North_rgb_monogram.pngMembers living in the north of England automatically become members of Authors North and receive Authors North mailings.

With over 1,000 members, Authors North is the largest regional group, which is run by a volunteer events committee and an events organiser at the SoA. The group usually organises three day-long events each Spring, Summer and Autumn for members living in the north of England. Events feature speakers from the publishing industry on topics of interest to authors

Each event provides the opportunity for members and their guests to meet in a convivial atmosphere to swap stories, make contacts and generally enjoy themselves in pleasant company.

Currently, events are happening online though we hope to host some in-person events once restrictions are lifted. Please see the events listing for upcoming events.
