Nick Yapp

Co-Chair of the Books Committee

“I was a teacher for 27 years before realising that I could make as much money writing as I could teaching, and that writers didn’t have to do playground duty. I became a member of the Guild in 1987 and have never regretted joining a Union that does so much for writers from every discipline. I have been Chair of the Books Committee twice before. And if anyone wants to read the history of the Guild, please read The Write Stuff wot I wrote 10 years ago and updated recently.”
