Joining the SAS

Membership of the Scattered Authors Society is open to all traditionally published writers for young people. Some people are understandably confused as to what 'traditionally published' means. If your publisher is listed in the current edition of the Children's Writers' and Artists' Yearbook (published annually by A&C Black) then you are eligible for membership of the SAS. If you would like to join, please email for more information. If you are not sure if your publisher is listed, please use the same email to ask us for confirmation.*

*NB If you have contributed towards publication of your book, whether in print or online then you will unfortunately not be eligible for membership.

These membership criteria have been set  for administrative purposes and do not imply criticism of other forms of publishing.
