The PPA Independent Publishers Network is home to the smaller, entrepreneurial publisher members of the PPA.


The Independent Publishers Network (IPN) is the PPA's central point for smaller publishers (those with a turnover under £10 million) to share experiences and knowledge, and to network with other members. The IPN holds meetings, lunches, forums and seminars throughout the year, and each event is designed to address the specific needs of independent and smaller publishers.

Independent publishers are a vital part of the PPA membership and the IPN provides a space tailored to their needs.
