We need your feedback!
Future and Form is central part of a celebration of 50 years of the University of East Anglia’s pioneering Creative Writing programme, and is designed to look forward to the next 50 years and explore the interface between contemporary literature and creative technology.
We want to learn from you, too, about how writing and reading might change in the future by getting your reactions to the work you experienced.
Each survey will take around five minutes to complete and your feedback will play a vital part in our research. Your views will really help us to understand how and why people might engage with this form of work in the future.
Have you experienced a Future and Form work online or in-person? If so, we’re keen to hear what you think! Your feedback will help us make improvements and continue to offer this programme to the general public for free. Please click the links below to tell us your thoughts on the individual works.
