Yorkshire and North East

“I joined the Writers’ Guild when I became a regular writer on a soap opera. I was encouraged by my colleagues who recognised that despite having one of the more secure TV writing jobs (relatively speaking) it was still important to stand shoulder to shoulder with our colleagues elsewhere. Indeed, the rights that we had as soap writers were won for us by the Guild and that deserved our continuing support. Having since moved into the more treacherous areas of television, I am constantly grateful for the invisible supporting hand of the Guild and the confidence that my membership gives me to stand up for myself. I joined the TV Committee in 2013 and I am more than proud to represent my beloved Yorkshire.”
