About Us

Founded in 1966, the Writers Guild Foundation is the premier resource for emerging writers and pop culture devotees in Hollywood. Boasting a busy calendar of high-value events and a vast, seemingly bottomless toolbox for writers, the Foundation is unmatched in its efforts to promote and preserve the craft of writing for the screen.

A nonprofit entity, we’re proud of all we do for the community, including our Veterans Writing Project, our High School Screenwriting Workshops, our Archive, and the Shavelson-Webb Library – the world’s only library devoted entirely to writing for the screen.
