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 or surveys.

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.

Non-broadcast audio writers survey

We want to hear from writers of scripted non-broadcast audio, including podcasts or pieces that have been distributed on streaming platforms or available to download. Fill in our survey here so we can understand how we can best support your interests.




Doctors Instagram Post#SaveBBCDoctors

The BBC has announced that it is cancelling the continuing drama Doctors after 23 years – a terrible loss to the UK writing community and to audiences. Write to your MP using our template letter, sign the petition and find out other ways to get involved via our special campaign page.




‘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.
