Many of you may already have received an email from Creative NZ about their Literature Review Draft Report. If not, you can download the report from here.
The deadline for submissions is 9am on 3 November and we would encourage you all to have a look and fill out the online questionnaire. Pg 20 of the report explains how you can do this by email, letter or on surveymonkey.
The report is 46 pgs long so it is not a quick read, but it contains important questions about (amongst other things) what genres CNZ should fund, whether they should fund self publishing, whether they have the balance right between awards/residencies/individual writing grants, the New Zealand Post Book Awards and much more.
You might need to allow at least 15-30 mins to complete the questionnaire part. It is also suggested (by someone who has already completed it!) that you double-check the 1-5 ranking and be sure which means "Most important" and which is "Least important".
This is an important opportunity to voice your concerns about issues that affect writers for children and young adults, so don't miss it!
