TLC at SYP Wider

May 17, 2018 | Other News

TLC is delighted to be taking part in the inaugural event for the Society of Young Publishers‘ ‘SYP Wider’ initiative. Following on from the success of our ‘Get a Job in Publishing’ course with the Book Skills Collective, we are very pleased to have the opportunity to talk to some of the themes arising from the course, from #BookJobTransparency to the importance of representation in the publishing workforce to ensure greater inclusivity in what is commissioned and published. This is also an opportunity to hear about organisations like TLC, the Publishers’ Association, and London Book Fair, who are working to support writers in ways that run parallel to traditional publishing house structures. There are many ways in, and we look forward to discussing what the wider world of publishing looks like.


Tickets are available here.

Event Blurb

On 17th May from 6.30pm at The Bunch of Grapes SYP will host an exciting panel on the wider world of publishing. The panel will kick off at 7pm, followed by a Q&A session and casual networking afterwards. Tweet your thoughts from the panel by using our hashtag #SYPWider to help others follow along from afar.

Our expert panelists will be representing some of the most influential and exciting organisations and professions outside of a traditional publishing house. We will discuss how these organisations help shape UK publishing culture and discourse, and will explore how trends such as the rise of digital publishing, self-publishing and even Brexit are affecting their corners of the industry. Our panelists will offer different perspectives on the publishing, literature and literary values. This event is a great opportunity to learn about the industry and approach many topical debates from a fresh angle.
