002A new branch of the Society of Young Publishers (SYP) Scotland was launched in Edinburgh last week, to add to the organisation’s London and Oxford branches. The SYP is a networking organisation for those working in publishing and the book trades, or hoping to join it soon.

Around 5o publishers, booksellers, and publishing students attended the launch event held in the offices of Publishing Scotland, and networked over wine and a very large chocolate cake.

As well as celebrating the launch, SYP members heard talks on The Future of Publishing in Scotland from Waterstone’s and from Claire Squires, the Director of the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication.

More details on the SYP are available from their website.
