About this Survey

This survey is for literature organisations, funded and non-funded in the UK, including (but not limited to):

- organisations who work with and for writers and poets;
- organisations who develop programmes of activity and content for readers and wider audiences. 
You can choose to complete the survey anonymously, or you can share your organisational info. Whichever option you choose, any information you share with us in this survey will be anonymised in any findings and reports. 

The survey forms part of CRIPtic Arts’ and Spread the Word’s Access to Literature research work which aims to understand the barriers to access in the literature sector for D/deaf and disabled writers and audiences and how we can improve access to programmed opportunities both in person and online.


Through providing your feedback we will be able to start to build a data and evidence base to support change and the opening up of opportunities for D/deaf and disabled writers and audiences.


The survey will run until: Tuesday 21 September 2021, 5pm. 


The research will result in a report of the findings, online sharing of best practice and training sessions for funded organisations, non-funded organisations and individual creative practitioners. 


Your personal data will not be shared and any findings used in the report will be anonymised.
