The conference is an excellent opportunity to develop your professional knowledge, find out about developments in the publishing industry, and network and socialise with like-minded colleagues. The theme of the 2017 conference is Context is key: Why the answer to most questions is ‘It depends’. The aim is to explore the many different contexts in which we all work (including different subject areas, types of client and career stages), and how those contexts affect the decisions we make. The programme will feature hands-on workshops, stimulating and relevant speakers, and opportunities to explore areas of editorial work that may be new to you. The provisional conference programme will be released before booking opens in March. Please check back then for further details.
