The Society of Authors
Government & Non Profit
The Society of Authors (SoA) is a nonproﬁt organization founded in 1884 to protect the interests of professional authors, illustrators, and translators. Headquartered in London, England, the society has more than 9,000 members and associates, with a small staff located at headquarters. The SoA campaigns for authors’ rights, negotiates with publishers, and lobbies for changes to copyright and libel laws. Along with hosting meetings and seminars, it publishes a quarterly journal, administers prizes, awards grants, and maintains a database of member specializations.
An unstable, inﬂexible database at the heart of many of the society's core processes stood in the way of improving member services.
