Our book, ’26 Treasures’ and the Wordsworth survey

Launch of “26 Treasures” the book published by Unbound, featuring work by 26 members inspired by objects at four national museums. The event will include talks and readings by many of the participants. It will be at the V&A Sackler Theatre (in the Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington, London). Event will run from 3 till 4 on afternoon of 18th September. Places are free to 26 members but we ask people to let Rachel Marshall know if you’ll be attending as there will also be places for the general public. Email rachel.marshall@26.org.uk to get your name added to the list.

The Wordsworth Survey (As in, what are our words worth?)

Would you like to know what the average daily rate is for a copywriter? In that case, please fill in our anonymous Wordsworth survey and we’ll let you know the headlines at 26 Wordstock, then we’ll put the full results up here after that.

Last time we ran Wordsworth our average rate was £214, narrowly up from £212 two years earlier. But that was before the recession.

It’s not just for writers. Please fill it in however you work with words, whether it’s commissioning them, making them look lovely on a website, writing scripts, novels or speeches.

May we ask a favour? We do need proper answers for this to work. Please allow yourself the time the fill the lot in. About 15 minutes should do it. Pleas take longer if you’ve got a lot to get off your chest; there’s plenty of space for opinions and we want them all. Sarah McCartney
