Society of Authors in Wales

The Society of Authors in Wales is a national group of the Society of Authors. Established in 2018, we provide professional advice and support for Welsh writers at all stages of their career, whether they write in English or Welsh.

We organise regular events and host socials across the year via a volunteer steering committee and local groups. Join us to meet authors across Wales, find out what’s happening in your area and be a part of your local Society of Authors community.

Our communities

We have a growing number of local groups in Wales, connecting members at regular meet-ups and events. Run by members for members, local groups are a great way to meet fellow authors in your area, share knowledge, support and inspire one another. We currently have groups in Aberystwyth, Monmouth, and North Wales. Find out more here.

We want to help connect more members in their area and create local author communities across Wales. If there isn’t a local group in your area, we can help you get started.

Staying in touch

We send a quarterly newsletter of upcoming events, opportunities and news to all members living in Wales. Please contact us if you would like to be added to the mailing list.

You can also opt to join our private Facebook group where SoA members can share their news, opportunities, events and post queries about their work.
