Authors in Health Crisis survey

A NEW (fourth) round in the Society of Authors' survey on Authors in Health Crisis has opened. It takes just over five minutes to fill in, and covers some detail such as at what point in the pandemic (during which of the three lockdowns to date) your income started getting affected by the Covid crisis.

The Society of Authors offices

The Society of Authors offices in Bloomsbury's Bedford Row, closed at the time of writing.

Please consider taking the time to fill it in. The survey is here. There's a fair amount of space for free text on some of the questions so you can give detail on your own experiences.

It would be particularly useful to the Society of Authors' lobbying efforts if you could fill in the survey in time for the Budget on 3 March. In November, the Society was able to present detailed evidence of the effect of Covid and the lockdowns on 2100 authors ahead of the Comprehensive Spending Review.
