The northern branch of the SYP was started in 2011, born out of a frustration with the lack of a place for fun publishing northerners to get together. We are a really friendly, informal group, which started off with just 5 people and has now grown to see around 30–40 people at each event, which is great!

We hold bi-monthly events that always showcase brilliant writers, publishers and performers, and involve lots of nattering over local beer, wine and tasty food.

We love to welcome new people to the group, so please keep an eye on our events and come to the next one. If you want to get in touch/be added to the mailing list/ask questions/tell us something lovely then just drop us an email via the Contact page.
