Be part of the 2022 Online Fiction Writers Survey
Let's find out how we're all doing this
Hi Fictionistas! I’ve launched a survey which I’m hoping will prove interesting to anyone who writes and publishes fiction online. The intention is to find out more about our techniques and approaches, thereby setting a benchmark for the scene as it stands in 2022.
Once the survey has been running for a while, I’ll collate and analyse the responses and write it up in a handy report anyone can read. Here’s some of the things I’m hoping to find out:
Which genres are dominant in the online fiction space?
Have writers published in other forms?
How many of us are writing full-time, or part-time?
What strategies are people using to promote their work?
Where are people publishing their fiction?
What forms of monetisation are being used?
How important is community?
It could be that there are certain trends emerging, or perhaps we’re all experimenting in wildly different directions. I’m hoping the results will shine a light on best practice and help each of us improve our methods.
The survey should only take about five minutes to complete. You can find out more about it (and me) over on my Substack:
This will work best if lots of people get involved, so please do share the link with your writing network and fellow creatives across Twitter, Facebook, newsletters and so on.
Thanks! Stay tuned for the report later this year.
