North


Predominantly dividing our events between Leeds and Manchester, the SYP North committee is made up of a wonderful mix of book publishers, students and freelancers with a wealth of experience between them.

There has been a surge of activity and focus on the industry here over the past few years and we’ve developed loyal working relationships with the region’s best publishing houses, universities and literature festivals to inspire and support young and aspiring publishers.

From panels on The Future of Northern Publishing, to drop-in clinics at Writing on the Wall Festival and explorations of Diversity in Publishing, our events are the best way to keep informed and get involved.
