SYP Ireland’s (Publishing) New Years’ Resolutions

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.

-Melody Beattie

Although January has sped by, we decided to share with you our publishing-centric New Years’ Resolutions as your SYP Ireland committee. We want to make sure that we are doing what we can to make sure you’re getting the most out of SYP Ireland. No matter where you are in your career; whether you’re just starting to get curious about publishing or have been involved for years and are wondering how to take the next step, know that SYP Ireland is here for you.

New Year’s’ Resolutions are a fantastic way to assess what’s important and how you plan to move forward to achieve your goals, and that is exactly what we are hoping to do. More events. More meet-ups. More ways for you to get involved and on the right track to being a part of the Irish publishing scene. We want to be the place you can come to as a connection to the publishing community as you begin to develop your career. Let us know what we can do for you.

So here are our New Year’s’ Resolutions:

  1. Events and meet-ups. We had a great time meeting some of you at our Christmas Book Swap way back when in December. The best way to build a community with other book loving pals is to meet up with them. It can be hard trying to figure out what you want to do without talking to someone who have been there. That’s why we think it’s so important and are looking forward to seeing your lovely faces more this year. (Watch this space and our Facebook page!) Even if you’re on your own, we’re always delighted to see new faces and talk everything books. Who knows who you might meet?


  1. Skill sharing. We all do different things and have different experiences. So wouldn’t it be great to share some of the things we know, that others may not? There are loads of areas of publishing that nobody really knows about until they’re in the job. We think that the opportunity to open people’s’ eyes to the potential areas within the industry makes for a great New Years’ Resolution. You never know what you might discover.


  1. Communication. If you meet any of us you’ll know that we love to talk. So this year we’re hoping to get the conversation flowing using our Facebook, and TwitterFollow us and say hi!

The main thing we’re hoping for this year is to make sure SYP Ireland is here for you. So share with us what you want from your committee.

Here’s to 2019 and we hope to see you soon!
