Children's Writer Group Survey

The following questions will help us get to know you and your writing interests, and what you expect to get from and give to the Children’s Writer Group. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers – but only honest answers will help us improve the group and grow together as children’s writers.

This survey was originally given to our standing list of group members, but has been extended as a pre-admittance survey for new group members. Don't worry about the "what would you change" question if you are filling out the survey as a request to join. *Smile*
