I just spent some time filling out these two surveys targeted at Caribbean writers and I think you should too – because this kind of research if harnessed correctly can bring about the kind of growth we want to see in the industry.
This one is by Anansesem and is targeted at writers of children’s fiction and, I think, applies to writers of teen/young adult fiction as well.
This one is by the Caribbean Literary Heritage project and is targeted at all Caribbean writers, polling how much care and interest they put in to what happens to their papers.
Check them out.
