WGGB member networks 

Writers from under-represented writing groups can meet, network, share experiences and discuss issues relating to writing and the creative industries in a safe space, thanks to WGGB’s series of member networks. 

The networks have been spearheaded by WGGB’s Equality and Diversity Committee and the issues raised may inform its work in future. The networks are not formal committees or subcommittees in themselves, and no notes or recordings are taken.  

The Equality and Diversity Committee plans for each group to meet approximately every six months – check the schedule below for what we’ve got coming up. 

Please contact john@writersguild.org.uk if you have any access needs or further questions.

Schedule for 2024 – all 5-6pm, via Zoom
