Thank you for taking the Story Circle Network Survey
As Story Circle Network (SCN) enters its 27th year it's time for the Board to take a deep look at what is working well, what can be improved, and what can be added to our broad body of support to writers and readers.  Our Network is unusually rich in programs and offerings from publishing opportunities, to writing support, to awards, webinars, classes, foreign travel, newsletters, journals and more. Your responses here will help us continue to provide excellence in the years to come. 

This survey should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please make sure you hit the SUBMIT button at the end to ensure your responses are collected. 

Please note, that this information is for Board planning purposes and will not be shared with any other organization. Thank you.
