Online consultation open now

Deadline for feedback: 14th November 2014 (at 5pm)

As part of Creative Scotland’s strategy for the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland, Creative Scotland has commissioned Nordicity in association with Drew Wylie Ltd. to conduct a sector review for literature and publishing. This review is to help better understand the literary and publishing ecology in Scotland in order to develop intelligent and informed recommendations, strategy and policy approaches, and to support government and industry decision-making.
In order to best understand and respond to the needs of the sector, an essential element of this review is a survey of its various constituencies. As a result, Creative Scotland is seeking input from all Scottish writers, publishers, literature services professionals, booksellers, translators and book festivals by responding to this survey. We are also interested in canvassing the general public of Scotland, including representatives from book clubs, readership associations and individuals interested in literature and reading.
The insight that the results will bring will directly impact all individuals involved in Scotland’s literature sector as it will be instrumental in Creative Scotland’s development of its forthcoming Arts Strategy and Creative Industries Strategy, it will also influence the implementation of the recently published Film Strategy.  Therefore, this is an important opportunity for all elements of the multifaceted sector to contribute views, enhance understanding and influence future decision-making.
The survey can be completed between 23rd October 2014 and 14th November 2014.
The survey will close at 5pm on 14th November.

Completing the survey may require 15-30 minutes of your time. In order to complete the survey more quickly, you may find it helpful to have your financial documents for 2013/14 available when you start. Should you not be able to complete the survey in one visit, it will be possible for you to save your entries thus far and continue where you left at any point in the survey.
