I'm currently in the development stage of a project that will hopefully, once launched, help amplify queer voices in the Scottish literary scene. In preparation, and to know where to focus efforts and resources, I want to get a clear picture of what life is like for queer writers in Scotland: where our interests lie, what community is out there, how that community is currently supported, and what exactly could use some work. In particular, I'm interested in whether the various identities that make up the queer community are all given meaningful representation in what we read.
The survey is mostly multiple choice with a few opportunities to comment, so it should take no more than 10 minutes.
The first half will ask general questions about identity and reading habits.
The second half is directed towards writers. If you're not a writer feel free to skip these questions.
The last three questions are about the current queer literary scene in general.
All questions are optional. All information will be kept confidential and used only for the purposes of better understanding how the queer writing community could benefit from different forms of support.
Thanks again! Your time and ideas are very, very much appreciated.
