A Pilot Study Examining the Information Seeking of Fiction Writers

  • Arielle VanderSchans University of Western Ontario

Abstract

This paper explores the information-seeking behaviours of fiction writers through a pilot study using an online survey. The information-seeking behaviour of fiction writers has been understudied, with the focus in Library and Information Science research falling predominantly on readership and publishing. This study represents an early step in exploring creativity and serendipity’s role in the information-seeking habits of storytellers.
