Welcome to the Society of Young Publishers
Established in 1949, the Society of Young Publishers is open to anyone in publishing or a related trade – or who is hoping to be soon. The SYP was originally founded for under-35s, but it's now open to anyone and caters especially for those with fewer than ten years' publishing experience. Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, our aim is to help assist, inform and encourage anyone trying to break into the industry or progress within it.
