“Writing can be a lonely, demoralising and isolating experience. It’s good to know that someone’s out there rooting for you, and working on your behalf, so that everyone can enjoy the same basic rates in TV/film/radio etc. All writers have original voices, but together we’ve got a strong voice that isn’t easy to ignore. In my view, being a member of the Writers’ Guild is an important part of scriptwriting in the UK. If you want to be part of the UK writing community, or want something to be better in your writing life, then the Guild is a great resource and reference point, and it can be quite social, too.”
