We are launching a Working In Publishing newsletter.

Each month we will email you a round-up of useful resources for people wanting to progress or start a career in publishing. We’ll focus on particular areas of publishing each time, with great insights into people's day-to-day publishing work and careers via blogs and the IPG Podcast. The email will also spotlight the latest job opportunities in independent publishing, and flag other content that might be of interest. We welcome all ideas for this new resource, so please get in touch if you have any suggestions.

To receive the email, simply leave your details here.

It is freely available to all, so please invite anyone who might find this new service useful to sign up too.
