Interested in Publishing? Join OSYP’s Autumn Conference

Posted on behalf of OSYP. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on November 8, 2017.

The Society of Young Publishers is open to anyone, of any age, interested in publishing or a related trade – or who is hoping to be soon. Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, their aim is to assist, inform and encourage anyone trying to break into the industry or progress within it.

This weekend you can attend the SYP’s autumn conference, Publishing –A Brave New World? at Brookes University, Saturday 11 November, all day from 9:15am. Tickets will be available on the door as well as online from the Conference website .

The conference is a fantastic opportunity to hear from an incredible range of industry experts, and gain valuable insight if you are interested in a career in publishing. The day is specifically geared towards anyone wanting to get into publishing, or just starting out in their careers, with a CV clinic, networking ‘green room’ and talks on internships and kickstarting your career in publishing alongside industry experts talking on sustainability, ethics and inclusivity within the publishing industry.

The SYP has a number of active branches, including one in Oxford. The SYP:

  • hosts a large number of speaker and networking events, workshops, and socials;
  • offers an expansive and informed jobs board and online forum;
  • publishes a quarterly magazine called Inprint, and runs annual Spring and Autumn conferences (Tickets still available for this Saturday’s conference in Oxford!).
