Full Membership

For the first year of Full Membership the subscription is £198, after which we have an earnings-based subscription banding system, subject to a minimum subscription of £198 and a maximum subscription of £2,000 per annum. For existing members who wish to renew their membership please go to the renewals section. Please note: you can only pay in instalments by Direct Debit.

As well as the standard WGGB member benefits Full Members can join the WGGB pension scheme, upload a Find A Writer profile, and are eligible for Cannes Accreditation and to have the joining fee waived from membership to Writers Guild of America, East and West (if they meet eligibility criteria).
