On The Map

Partnering with The Bookseller, The Society of Young Publishers put on pop-up events around the UK to shine a spotlight on publishing talent, highlight roles and routes into the industry less talked about, and disrupt the idea that you must move to the capital to work in publishing.

The On The Road (in-person) and On the Map (online) series will travel across the UK to spotlight the publishing scene currently outside the regions covered by the SYP. We will showcase a variety of promising, exciting and innovative publishing landscapes worth bookmarking.

There is a common misconception that aspiring publishers should move to London to get a job in publishing, and whilst the capital is a vibrant creative hub, it’s not for everyone and it’s certainly not the only place to see exciting and dynamic publishing.

We want to reach further than our main branches and provide insight and inspiration to young and aspiring publishers everywhere.

Keep an eye on our events listings for the next On The Road event near you, or an On The Map virtual event coming soon!
