Next week is #workinpublishing week, a fantastic initiative run by the Publishers Association to encourage those interested in publishing and those from outside the trade to join our wonderful industry. The campaign has been running since last year and you may have seen their tweets featuring tips and advice from key industry figures, guest blogs and career profiles to provide an inside look into the world of publishing. They have a great line up scheduled for next week and so if you are looking to find out more about publishing and are interested in a career in it, this week is not one to miss!
