Literature fiction in the midst of crises as turnover drops sharply, Arts Council England reported | Bücher
According to a new Arts Council England (ACE) article, the picture of the poor author scraping out his masterpiece in an ice-cold attic is still as accurate today as it was a hundred years ago, which showed that few people can withstand slumping retail spending, falling books and progress simply by their work.
It found that literary fiction is sold significantly lower than in the mid-1980s and that the actual cost of the mean literary fiction has declined over the last 15 years. Growing in eBooks sells in genders such as crimes and romance has not made up for the deficit in literary fiction, calling on ACE to outlines ways it plans to sustain affected writers.
Canelo' s study analyzed Nielsen BookScan's book sale figures and found that hardcover book sale fell by £10 million between 2007 and 2011. After 2008, pocketbook literature suffered a more severe slump almost every year. The sale of paperbacks in 2011 was 162 pounds. Among the few literary works that have produced more than a million pieces are Atonement by Ian McEwan, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, The Time Traveler's World by Audrey Niffenegger and Life of Pi by Yann Martel.
The literary best-seller of last year was Kate Atkinson's A God in Ruins, who produced 187,000 books - about half of the 360,000 Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey, the best seller of 2015. The decrease in literary fiction is due to the downturn, which is accompanied by an increase in inexpensive and simple fiction.
"Compared to our smart phones, literary fiction is often'difficult' and expensive: it's not free and demands more focus than Facebook or CANDAY crush," writes the report's writers. As ACE said, "historically there is an assumed belief that literary fiction falls within the realm of business publication and therefore does not require much immediate involvement by the Cultural Foundation.
She now proposes to encourage more single writers through her scholarships for the art program, to promote the financing of various organizations, especially outside London, and to strengthen her sponsorship of independant literary fiction publishing houses - one of the few light areas mentioned in the article that points to "a blossoming of new independant magazines dedicated to literary fiction".
The Commission also intends to enter into talks with the authorities to introduce fiscal incentives for small publishing houses and to promote possibilities for developing readers. Literary writer Will Self, however, had no hope for the industry's bright prospects. "The literary fiction is already subsidized - think of all the authors who still earn their livelihood to teach creativity now.
It' s more like a quilt now," he said, and described novels that have been wrote about imaginative writers' classes as'collective undertakings'. In 2015, the printing sector experienced an upswing when it became apparent that for the first year in four years there had been an increase in turnover.
Consumer appetites for cookbooks and coloring products rose as a result of the postponement, which persisted in 2016 as eBooks sold down 4% and pressure grew 2%.
