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 are looking for a course on a particular subject, have a look at our new courses and suggestions page.

In 2019 Harper Macleod has run a series of seminars for publishers on topics including Funding, Exit and Succession, Copyright and Image Licensing, Restructuring and Insolvency, and Defamation.
