Survey Qualifying Information

As part of our mission to support marginalized writers reach a wider audience, Amplify Writers conducts an annual survey of people who earn, or hope to earn, any portion of their income through creative writing. We are open to hearing from writers regardless of where they live and are collecting zip code information to assess and report on our geographic reach.

Survey data is anonymous and is shared annually via Amplify's website and newsletter. Our hope is that this data can be of use by writers and community organizers seeking funding for projects that support the career development of writers with identities, backgrounds, and experiences that are underrepresented in publishing.

This survey was developed in 2022 via a six-month community engagement project funded by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
