The information gathered in this short survey will be used to create a set of observed payment rates for poets and spoken word artists asked to perform or give readings at events. The resource should help both poets and event organisers make a fair valuation of our work and time, giving poets a much stronger starting point for future negotiations. Please help by sharing your recent experiences - good or bad. 
If you'd like to help the SoA's Poetry and Spoken Word Group continue to campaign for the fair professional treatment of all poets, and to receive all the additional benefits of SoA membership, please consider joining us: We're offering three extra months for free to new joiners with the code POET1512.

Members of the Society of Authors can share and swap more details in our discussion forums. Do the festivals you have been to comply with the SoA's Minimum Practice Guidelines?
