What parts of the publishing industry does Campus cover?

The Campus programme takes inspiration from all across the publishing industry – from fiction, nonfiction, children’s, academic, education and STM, to wider industry issues like accessibility, sustainability, management and business.

Who is already part of the Campus community?

From mid-level professionals and senior leadership, relative newcomers or career switchers, freelancers and business owners, Campus attracts members from across the industry. Predominantly, our members are UK-based, but we do have members globally.

I’m new to publishing. Can I still join?

Absolutely. While our events and courses are tailored to publishing professionals with 10 to 15 years of industry experience, if you have less (or more!) years under your belt, then everything we do is relevant to you.

I’m a student or not in paid work right now. Are there discounts available?

Yes! Use the coupon code STUDENT-OR-JOBSEEKER at checkout to get 50% off for 12 months.

Can I attend an event if I’m not a member?

You can! Simply head to our events page and register for a ticket to come along. Some of our events do incur a small ticket fee, usually this is around £8.00.

Can I take a Campus course if I’m not a member?

We’re afraid not. Campus video courses are accessible with a Campus membership only. 

I’m not sure if Campus is for me. Are there any long-term commitments?

No problem! Give Campus a try for £18/month, and cancel anytime you like. You can always return to Campus in the future if you want to stay longer. If there’s anything at all that you’re not certain about, anything we haven’t made clear or any concerns or questions, then please do contact us.
