FAST TRACK Micro-Press Survey 2016
NOTE: This survey is ONLY for micro-publishers who have filled out my 2015 survey. It saves you time by skipping some of the questions you've already answered.
New to the micro-press survey? Go to:
NOTE: except where noted (2016 RECOMMENDATIONS and 2016 UPDATES), your answers will be anonymous.
Please reply by February 13. Your answers will be a part of my annual report, The Tiny Report: Micro-Press Yearbook 2016.
For the purpose of this survey, a micro-press is a very small (usually one-person) publishing house that puts out a line of comics by different authors. They often publish in pamphlet form. They generally self-distribute or use small, independent distributors.
So, for this survey, I’m NOT interested in:
Self-publishers who ONLY publish themselves
Collectives and distros who do not publish
Publishers who do not publish comics (or illustrated books that are very similar to comics)
Publishers who are not currently active
Thanks for your input!
