The Young to Publishing Group is an initiative of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) that strives to give entry-level and junior industry employees (typically with 0-5 years of publishing experience) a chance to build a community outside of their own publishing house and to educate themselves about the publishing industry as a whole. MEMBERSHIP IS FREE, and is open to all “young” (not far advanced in growth, junior, lacking experience) persons currently employed by an AAP member book-publishing house. For a complete list of AAP member houses, click here (http://www.publishers.org/members/).

Why is there a need for this group?

Based on a survey of assistant level publishing employees done in the fall of 2000, the Recruit and Retain Task Force (now the Diversity Recruit and Retain Task Force) witnessed a void in opportunity for newcomers to publishing (typically at the assistant/associate level) to network with their peers at the other publishing houses and to learn about the industry at large.

What are the goals this organization is trying to accomplish?

  • Provide an environment in which individuals new to the industry (0-5 years) feel welcomed and part of a bigger picture.
  • Create opportunities for individuals to learn about the publishing industry as a whole—all the departments and steps that influence the making of a book.
  • Organize opportunities for industry peers (entry/junior level) to mingle, network and get to know one another.
