Our training courses

Publishing Scotland runs about 20 publishing and business courses every year. We generally run several proofreading and writing digital content courses, as well as marketing and business courses. We also organise bespoke in-house courses. We add to our programme throughout the year. If you have any suggestions for training courses, talks etc, please email joan.lyle@publishingscotland.org.

Courses in May and June will take place online. An announcement as to the format of courses later in the year will be made as soon as possible.
