About Us

The Society of Young Publishers (SYP) represents aspiring and early-career (within the first twn years of their careers) publishing and book-trade professionals. We have committees in Scotland, the North, London, Oxford, the South West, and Ireland. These committees organise panel discussions, workshops, networking sessions and more to help members learn more about the industry and meet others in similar positions.

The SYP organises a mentoring scheme every year and publishes a quarterly publishing magazine, InPrint, for members.

At SYP Scotland we want to unite publishing newbies all across Scotland through our relationships with organisations such as Publishing Scotland, publishers, literary agents, and booksellers. Our monthly events, book club, Instagram Takeovers, Twitter #SYPChat and wonderful careers talks aim to engage, enthuse, educate, and entertain young publishers from Inverness to Inveraray, from Glasgow to Glencoe, from St Andrews to Stornaway and from Edinburgh to East Kilbride.

Follow SYP Scotland and all the other regional branches on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube and sign up for our newsletter for the latest news and to hear about upcoming events and other exciting content.
