Work in Publishing 2021

The Publishers Association’s Work in Publishing campaign returns from Monday 15 to Friday 19 November. Work in Publishing aims to inspire people to pursue a career in publishing.

Everyone working in publishing can join in with the campaign by sharing why they love to #WorkInPublishing and amplifying careers information that will be shared by the Publishers Association, publishers and other partners throughout the week.

Ruth Howells, Deputy Director of External Affairs at the Publishers Association, said:

“We’re delighted to be running Work in Publishing week again this year. It’s such a pleasure to see people sharing what they love about working in this industry and giving advice to those who are interested in pursuing careers in publishing. There’s a particular focus this year on hearing from people who have joined publishing from another industry.

“As ever, there’s still time to get involved – it’s as easy as sharing any insights or guidance you would have found useful at the outset of your career using the hashtag #WorkInPublishing on twitter.”

Activity for this year’s Work in Publishing campaign includes:

  • HarperCollins will be sharing a profile each day on social media of people who have switched industries to work in publishing. There will be five profiles in total of people across the business.
  • Comma Press will host a work in publishing Q&A on their blog.
  • Hachette will host their final Opening the Book session on Contracts on 16th November at 1pm. The full series will be available to view on their website.
  • The Publishers Association will be hosting Q&As with people who have moved from other industries to work in publishing as well as highlighting the range of entry-level resources available on the Publishers Association website.
