The SoA is the UK trade union for all types of writers, illustrators and literary translators, at all stages of their careers.

The SoA’s quarterly journal, The Author, is an invaluable source of information, news and opinion for authors, as well as for publishers, literary agents and other industry professionals.

It has a circulation of approximately 10,000. In 2019, the Editor asked Mark to illustrate the cover on the theme of the symbiotic relationship between writer and designer. You’ll find some rejected designs here as well that he’s rather proud of too.
