SYP Scotland is a branch of the Society for Young Publishers, a community of support and sharing for people of any age who have been in publishing for fewer than ten years, or who are interested in working in the industry. We have a diverse membership, from publishing students to established professionals.

As part of our commitment to career development, we are designing a mentoring scheme wherein more experienced professionals can support our members. Whilst we can't pay mentors, we do have funds to reimburse expenses.
