The SoA condemns the attack on the office of Charlie Hebdo in Paris on 7 January, in which 12 people died, and supports the statements by English PEN and others deploring the assault on innocent lives and the fundamental human right to freedom of expression.
We were delighted to see a number of authors recognised in the 2015 Honours List, most of whom are Members of the SoA. Many congratulations to Dames Carol Ann Duffy and Marina Warner, Ali Smith CBE and Anne Chisholm OBE.
The more writers the SoA represents, the stronger our voice. That’s why we’re looking to increase our ranks in 2015. Nothing beats personal recommendations, so we’re asking you to help spread the word.
