Writers’ Views

The Casket of Fictional Delights has been running for five years and is looking to the future.  Up till now it has been a totally free service but is considering possible ways of recouping some of its running costs. Advertising is a possibility but we really don’t want to go down this route as it would spoil the whole look and feel of the website.

If you could spare a few minutes to complete a survey to help us work out what to do next we would be extremely grateful.  The survey is anonymous.  To compete the Writers’ Views Survey CLICK HERE

Thank you for your time and help it is much appreciated.
