The Inpress Festival of Publishing is a celebration of all things creative, with a practical twist. A showcase of the inventiveness, innovation, diversity and agility of independent publishers, and all those working in our industry.
Designed as a networking and sharing of ideas event, the Inpress Festival of Publishing is a day of presentations and panel events featuring an eclectic mix of experts ready to share their experiences and their discoveries.
This year we're mapping our future. Considering themes of authenticity and voice, inspiring and supporting younger generations and consolidating our role in this fragile ecosystem. At a time when many in the industry are only starting on their journey towards inclusivity and diversity, how can independent publishers capitalise on this sudden focus on the things that have always been their strengths?
