A survey of writers suggests there could be a flurry of books arising from the coronavirus lockdown.
A new post on our associated arts and entertainment blog, Piece of Pink Pie, reports that Page Turner Awards, who conducted the research, say it shows writers have been more resilient, so we can expect a boom in the printed (or digital) word – in contrast with film and TV content, where productions have stalled.
The survey showed that, overall, 61% are writing more or about the same because home-working has freed up more time, and less socializing means more writing time.
Unfortunately, 33% of those who are writing more say it is because they have lost their job – particularly in the UK, where 70% of participants were part-time writers.
