SYP to launch Irish branch


The Society of Young Publishers (SYP) is delighted to announce the launch of SYP E?ire – a new branch of the SYP based in Dublin.

SYP E?ire will provide a community for members of the publishing industry based in Dublin. It will focus on practical, educational events and information to support those who are in their first 10 years in the industry or those who hope to become part of the industry. A team of volunteers will lead SYP E?ire as a sister branch to the existing branches of the SYP. Further information about its activities will be available shortly.

Upcoming chair of SYP E?ire Emily Cook said: “Ireland is rich with literary culture and is a country which celebrates its writers every day. The vibrant publishing trade in Ireland and its thriving cultural scene – with literature at its core – deserves a community that will support and encourage its newcomers. I hope that SYP E?ire will become that community and I look forward to being a part of this”.

Incoming Chair for 2016 Zara Markland said: ‘As the incoming Chair I am absolutely delighted to be starting 2016 with such an exciting expansion for the SYP. I think I can speak for Anna and myself when I say that this is a fabulous development for the SYP which has been established from the passion of our members. We will watch it grow over the coming months, becoming a valuable part of the SYP family.’
