Scotland


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, Twitter feed and wonderful careers talks aim to engage, enthuse, educate and entertain young publishers from Inverness to Inveraray, from Glasgow to Glen Coe, from St Andrews to Stornoway and from Edinburgh to East Kilbride.
