Have your say

Get your voice heard on an issue that matters to you!

WGGB runs a number of campaigns, with lots of opportunities to take part in petitions, surveys or to report good or bad practice in the industry.

Below is a list of current ways you can have your say. Every voice counts so please take part and share amongst your friends and colleagues.

‘Hybrid’/paid-for publishing

94% of writers who had paid to have their book published lost money, typically in the thousands, according to a new report by WGGB and the Society of Authors (SoA), which details aggressive marketing tactics, manipulative sales approaches, unclear contracts and publishing processes and services that fall far short of expectations and value.

Sign the open letter to call for an end to bad practice.

WGGB negotiates minimum terms for TV writers. However, we are aware that many writers are paid above minimums or are working for companies outside of our current collective agreements.

To help us monitor current rates of pay and ensure that all writers are being treated fairly, we’re asking TV writers to log how they were paid for their most recent contract. You do not need to give your name and all individual data will be kept confidential.

ReportIt!Report it!

If you are a writer who has experienced good practice, bad practice, discriminatory practice, bullying or harassment then we want to hear from you.

Please fill in this short survey, to help us in our vital work on behalf of writers (if you need immediate support please ring the WGGB office on 020 7833 0777 or email admin@writersguild.org.uk).
